Old Griselda is alone all the time because she has a sharp tongue and prefers to keep it that way. When a traveling woman repays her for a night's lodging with a beautiful handkerchief, she tells Griselda it's magic. Griselda, of course, thinks nothing of it until she wears the scarf and visits the village the next day for her marketing. When she opens her mouth to spit a cutting remark all that comes out are charming remarks. She is shocked and frustrated. Every time she meets a person and tries to say something awful she only has positive things to say. When she returns home she tosses the scarf aside, never to wear it again.

The next day she is visited by the people who she politely spoke to the day before and suddenly finds herself not so lonely!
