Send in the ents!
Merry and Pippin watch the ents in wonder. They are vastly different from one another, but each clearly resembles a type of tree. Some are stout and hearty, others thin. Some have many fingers, others few. Nonetheless, their aged eyes tell the same story, and they are undoubtedly of the same kind.
When they all arrive, they begin to chant slowly. The sound rises and falls, but continues ad infinitum. It’s pleasant, but the hobbits recognize that very little could actually be happening. Ents talk slowly, remember. Pippin sighs and jokes to himself.
Ah, the ents. They’re a kooky bunch, and certainly one of the strangest in Middle-earth. As a race, they look as different from one another as anything you could imagine. You get used to certain axioms: hobbits all have hairy feet. Elves are beautiful. And so on. Ents have no such linking characteristics, other than looking like trees. (Or, do trees look like ents?) They have different numbers of fingers and toes. Their bodily shapes are highly variable.
Anyway, I forgot to mention one important thing yesterday: I got another Lord of the Rings LEGO set. Because of course I did. I felt like treating myself, so that makes this actually the first set that I bought myself. It’s the Shelob set, which means I now have Sam and Gollum minifigures, not to mention another Frodo, and…the ring!
It actually comes with two extra rings, so it’s not really the “one” ring. Got to be safe, I guess. Can’t lose the ring!
Here’s a picture!
Today’s Gollum Meter: 75 – “As a LEGO minifigure, you’re pretty great.”
Sometimes, it’s the little things. And I got double LEGO VIP points on this purchase. That’s a little thing. And it’s awesome.
Words My Computer Didn’t Like:
Both of these are totally words. I respectfully disagree.
“‘I wonder what the Entish is for yes or no,’ he thought. He yawned.”
