My father was Happy Characters Elf Grinch Kevin Friends Christmas Shirt 14 when this gentleman was born. I’m still alive (I think). I’ll be 60 next year. He wasn’t even some super young guy when he served in WWII, he was 32. “Alas, eleventy-one years is far too short a time to live among such excellent and admirable hobbits.” I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve. The dumbfounded look on the hobbits after he says that is so funny. Hobbits truly are remarkably dumb creatures – what Gandalf meant to say probably. To be fair, it’s not exactly an easily digestible sentence.

Even I, who has Happy Characters Elf Grinch Kevin Friends Christmas Shirts been speaking the language for 18ish years of my life, have difficulty understanding it. It took me a while too… But I read it as him criticizing himself as being antisocial. Yeah, he basically really likes a quarter of them, the other quarter he likes but feels like he should probably make a better effort with, and half of them he is calling himself out on not really knowing them well at all. but further down it’s just an overly clever way of Bilbo admitting that he regrets not being a better hobbit to his neighbors. This is why I love that line so much. It’s such a brilliant little thing, but it resonated with me on a very personal level, even as a child.
