jim: reaches the end of a speculation on nose size and possible associated activities
me: hmmmm, both those gondor boys have
jim: big ones?
me: lovely large noses.
jim: but not dad - actually, isn't it funny they look so much alike, but not at all like dad. Finduilas must have had a hell of a honker
me: or known some ranger or traveller with one
jim: ah, *that* ranger?
me: no way, he has a bitsy nose.
jim: that's true. so, who might have been passing by with blond hair and a big nose?
me (sleepily): mmmmmm.....I don't know.... haldir?
jim (laughing): Aha! That would explain so much - like why Boromir hates musical comedy, and why Denethor closed Minas Tirith to the elves
me: hunny, that only happened in my stories
jim: well, this is only happening in your stories too!!
