The Legend EVERYDAY STORYTELLING
An example from the Nexus
What can we do with a story like this? My grandmother had been over visiting a relative in Halling and she had a little boy with her, and then they walked home to Nielstrup where she lived. When they got out onto Halling heath, then the boy says, “Look, mother, who are those two men walking there?” Then she looked and it looked to her as if there were two men walking with a chain between them. They passed right in front of them and they could both hear the chain rattle and they heard that the men were mumbling, but it wasn’t real talk. She continued watching them but they disappeared all of a sudden.
