Teaser Tuesday (16-3)
'Tis Tuesday. Let us be Teased, from Should Be Reading.
According to a story told by the priest who became Joan's confessor, as she crossed the bridge, a mounted soldier among the crowd called out, "Isn't that the Maid?" and with an oath declared that if he had her for a night she would no longer be a maid. Joan replied, "Ah, you take God's name in vain, and you are so close to death." Within the hour, the man fell into the moat and drowned.
