Overheard in the Common Room

“Hobbits and archaeologists basically have the same meals…They’re equally hairy, too.”

One thought on “Overheard in the Common Room”

  1. Specifically, both have long enjoyed the tradition of Second Breakfast.

    Also, now I come to think of it, both have a tendency to be settled in for a cosy life with books, maps and stuff about ancient languages when some grizzled, hairy old wizard in a silly hat comes along, takes them out to the far-flung corners of the world on an adventure and drastically changes their long-term career plans.
