” Jimmy, Jimmy, can you be my little knight errand and run to the corner store to get me a loaf of bread, a quart of milk and a dozen eggs”.
“Right you are Mrs.Brown” I said, after accepting her money” I’ll be back before you know it”.
Upon my return, she said “thank you Jimmy, you are my little knight errand” and gave me four Oreo cookies for my trouble
From that day every Tuesday and Friday, without fail, she would corner me and send me on some errand to the store, and would always call me her little knight errand.
Being curious over the meaning of knight errand, I questioned Miss Kelly, my teacher, who laughed and said “I think Mrs. Brown meant knight errant, a knight who wandered in search of adventure, to rescue damsels in distress and to right the wrongs of the land”.
“There you are Jimmy, my little knight errand, I’ve run out of bread” and having accepted her token I jumped on my steed to do her bidding and rode off on my quest.
