Once upon a time, there was a lonely old man who lived alone in a mansion house. He was alone and had no money and his mansion house was too large for him alone and he could not afford to keep the house. One day, he had a brilliant idea.

 

He lived in a tiny little town which was mid way between 2 very large cities, but these 2 large cities were 200 miles apart. This meant that travellers between the 2 busy cities generally stopped for fuel [gas] before they proceeded on their way. Some others needed a place to sleep during inclement weather.

 

But here was this lonely old man who had a house large enough to house a large number of people at once, but he lived alone - his brilliant idea was to offer his home up for travellers to stop by at, sleep over at, get freshened up at, and eat at before refueling and going on their way. For this, he charged a tidy sum. It was by no means cheap, but the travellers were mostly wealthy and established persons and the service was relevant and appreciated. Suddenly the sad, old lonely man was no longer alone or lonely. And he had so much money, his bank manager was genuinely and pleasantly surprised.

 

This continued and the travellers would get together in the lounge and talk about their various travels, some were business men and women, sports people, traders, merchants, explorers, naval, airforce and army officers, scientists, inventors, singers, etc - pretty much people from all works of life. Naturally, there was a buzz at the old man's house, when these hitherto strangers would get together and chat and chat away - each sharing their very varied experiences, jokes flowed, and so did laughter, debates, and of course the odd disagreement every once in awhile. The mansion house became alive, a place of joy, love and laughter. Friendships were forged, some even found love there. Oh what a wonderful place the old mansion house had become.

 

Then one day, an idea occurred to the old man - he felt he could just hang around behind the concealed oak door exit which was behind a huge, tall book shelf. Behind this door he would lurk and listen to every chat, every story, every amiable debate and some disagreements. What was surprising is his guests would never have minded him coming to join them for the chat, so it wasn't clear what was going on in his mind to make him want to lurk behind closed doors, instead. But his guests were never aware of his eavesdropping until one day when the old man got yet another idea.

 

As he lurked and eavesdropped, he didn't like some of the comments he heard - they were nothing at all offensive, demeaning or abusive and neither were these comments directed at him. Nevertheless, he felt a compulsion to start to control what his quests could say whilst being under his roof. Afterall, in his mind, he thought "the next city - the guests' destination - is 100 miles away; they have no choice but to stay here overnight and this is my house so I call the shots here!"

 

He relocated the switches to the light and heating of the lounge where his guests met and chatted the night away to the secret room behind the concealed door where he sat and lurked. Every time he heard a comment he did not like for whatever reason, he would flip the light switch off, or the heating switch off or both! Guests initially found this odd, they were forced to sit in the dark, no candles provided, the large room swiftly becoming cold, no blankets provided..... and worst of all, no explanations forthcoming from the old man.

 

Whilst the old man's mansion house had become famous, and well-like, this on-going strange happenings were unsettling for the travellers. News of discontent at this strange happenings began to spread. Then one day, the lonely old man left a written message at the mantle piece at  the lounge. In this writen message, he told the guests that he was responsible for switching their lights off, switching their heating off. The reason he gave was that he didn't much like the topic of discussions his guests engaged in in the lounge even though these wear clean topics ranging from dating experiences, women's reaction to men and vice versa, what a mother can name her child or not such as Messiah etc, chicken soup to get you warm and back on your feet etc, etc...

 

So why would anybody have a problem with such innocent topics? Only the lonely, weird, sad, old man did! He ignorantly declared that these topics were all offensive, profane and pornographic! All attempts on the parts of his guests to have a discussion on the matter with him to resolve the issue were futile. He would not engage with them in any way, shape or form. He continued to switch their heating and lights off....

 

When his neighbours heard of the discontent which was now spreading like wild fire amongst the wealthy travellers and within the town and the 2 cities, they simply opened their homes to these wealthy travellers and welcomed them with open arms, and warm hearts and charged them less than the old man did! Heck, they even gave them the tastiest, hottest chicken soup they ever had!

 

Need I say what happened to the sad, lonely old man and his man house? He fell and crumbled, was lonely and alone again and soon enough his money ran out....it was a sad and lonely end for him. Such a pity, when this could have been resolved quite easily and sensibly.

 

You get the picture.

 

MM - stop your Blog Nazi or you will end up like the sad, lonely old man in this tale!

Quoting Hoping4Love2000:

Hey GF! 

 

Just updated my profile! Not certain if it is showing or not. Bartending in Lafayette, La. and have a BF... BUT I NEVER SEE HIM.. So not certain it will work out, but I am holding onto my HOPE! I will determine by the end of the year if it is workable. I do not wish to waste time having a commitment with a man I rarely see. But, he knows I am a real Princess and have to be married in a castle! Did you know there are castles even in Louisiana!!!

 

Let me know when we can Skype soon! 



Hi Hope,

 

Good to hear from you. Apologies for late reply. I've been swamped! Hey, absent boyfriend is no good unless he has a good reason?

 

Anyway, I wish you the best of luck with him.....and yes you deserve to not only be married in a castle but to live in one :-)!

 

Love the photo you posted - pretty castle. And this is in Louisiana!

 

Liv.

Quoting Dakota35:

Liv,

Should I laugh or tell you how smart you are, or maybe that you should be a writer.  I'm not sure, but I did enjoy it.  At first I wasn't even sure where it was going...but I caught on about a third of the way down.  Nice. :)  It seems everyone is in agreement here, we love freedom of speech as long as we don't disrespect.  And in most case, I don't think we have.  Great story Liv!  And thank you for supporting my tantrum against my blog being removed.  I'm getting over it now. :-)



DAK - I'm glad you enjoyed it - that was the point of it. And I too very much enjoyed writing it - very much!

 

OK, I will make a mental note to myself about the writer bit :-). And as for the support, you are welcome - you know I call it as I see it and you are the last person that should have been treated like that. Yeah, I think the story was therapeutic for me in managing my anger at MM, so I will slowly climb off my soap box now and get on with the business of the day - I mean real life! :-))))

 

Liv
