Being Hobbit Day, today I went barefoot wherever I went, although being 6’ 4” meant that I wasn’t able to match their diminutive stature. Still, I also celebrated by having seven meals in one day, as the food-loving little Shire-dwellers enjoy so much: breakfast, second breakfast, elevenses, luncheon, afternoon tea, dinner and supper. And seeing how today is also White Chocolate Day, I made sure that each meal included that particular piece of confectionery for dessert.
Unfortunately, I’m now so fat that I broke Shadowfax’s back as he was giving me a ride home, so Gandalf the White has turned to Gandalf the Red-in-the-Face. As Gollum once said to Samwise Gamgee: “Stupid, fat Hobbit.”
