Ahem, excuse me!
Oh, hi Lilly! Everyone, in case you haven't met her, this is Lillyanne Sawyer, a spunky halfling that stars in both--
Just hold yer dragons, would ye?
Um, ok. What's up Lilly?
What is all this Hobbit madness? Everywhere I go, they're yellin', "Hey Hobbit! Can I get yer autograph?" How many shins do I have to kick to get them to leave me alone?
Everyone's just excited about the movie coming out, you know, about Bilbo Baggins, the original Hobbit, the most famous halfling in literature. He, Frodo, and Samwise inspired me to write you, after all. You could show some respect to your admirers.
For the last time, I'm Haddo, not Hobbit. Just because I'm short doesn't make me one of those whimperin' pups. Besides, I wear boots!
Bilbo helped defeat a dragon and helped the dwarves regain their treasure. And Frodo and Sam saved all of Middle Earth from an evil dark lord. That hardly makes them pups.
Those Hobbits whined more than a high elf with a broken nail. Not me. I didn't sit around and pout while a horde of demons destroyed my home and all of Tallenmere. I picked up my sword and fought with all I had.
They did too, you know. And your adventures weren't quite that simple, were they?
In the end, that's all that mattered. When yer friends are in danger, ye don't stop fightin' until they're safe.
Have you even read The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings?
I got to the part where Bilbo fainted and threw the whole thing against the wall.
Maybe you should finish it. Just sayin'.
Fine, but if one more person calls me a Hobbit, I'll make 'em wish they'd not crawled from their mother's womb!
Whew! Lilly's a firecracker, that's for sure. But, if you're like me and love Tolkienesque fantasy mixed with unforgettable romance, take advantage of this BOGO deal while it lasts!
