The Quiet Man – by Jack

We were in the Airport waiting for our flight details to show up on the board.  We were sitting on a bench in the food area when I noticed a man sitting very still and actually looked like a statue.  I went over to see if it really was a statue and touched his arm.  He moved his eyes but didn’t speak and I got a fright.  I ran away and my family all started laughing at me.   I wanted to talk to him but our flight details appeared on the screen and we had to go.  I went over & said goodbye to him and he winked at me.

  1. Hi Jack, I wonder if it was one of those performing artists we often see who act like statues and then make sudden movements? Well done. You’ve done a great job of telling a story from the picture.

  2. Hi Jack,
    I enjoyed reading your story. Well done!
    This man sounds like one of the many mime artists we have on the streets of Cork.
    They look like statues but then when you are passing they move and you get an awful fright.
    Keep up the good work.
