Once upon a time , a long time ago , there was a knight who , as he grew older lost all his hair . He became as bald as an egg . He didn’t want anyone to see his bald head , so he bought a beautiful , black , curly wig .
One day , some lords and ladies from the castle invited him to go hunting with them , so of course , he put on his beautiful wig . ” How handsome I look !” he thought to himself as he was dressing in front of his mirror . Then , he set off happily for the forest .
However , a terrible thing happened . He was riding along , singing merrily to himself , when he passed under an oak tree and his wig caught on a branch and fell off in full view of everyone . How they all laughed at him !At first , the poor knight felt very foolish but then he saw the funny side of the situation , he started laughing , too .
They were all still laughing when they arrived back at the castle . The knight never wore his wig again . From : New Headway English Course
