This and That  by Lindelea 3 Review(s)

This is great! Everything to make the Ring-bearer eat, lol.

Yes, anything to tempt the Ringbearer back to hobbit wholeness, not that that truly came to him. Love the special treats in store for Pippin, too, though.

Lovely thoughts and images. Popcorn for our beloved Hobbits. (Although they did have potatoes and squash, and so would probably have had popcorn as well--although this ties Aman to the Americas in this story.)

Poor Pippin. Dragged away from the chance to munch popcorn by dismal duty. The responsibility! He'll hardly be able to manage the weight of that tray! Do you think Sam should suggest the saving of some seed to see if he can coax it to grow in Gondor and/or the Shire? I'm sure Pippin would agree that it's a good idea.

Good for Aragorn - using up some of his precious wedding gift to get Frodo eating.

(If Sam learns to grow the stuff, he would be truly rewarded. And then, of course, it could become tremendously popular in Middle Earth and replace pipeweed production in the Shire which would be much healthier and make huge fortunes for the popcorn barons. Ahh, I'm getting carried away!!!)
