It’s kind of interesting. In just one or two years, my mother went from “But *why* don’t you want to have kids?” to “You know, if I had it to do over again today, I wouldn’t have had you and your brother.”
So at least I don’t get asked the question anymore.
So, for those of you who haven’t actually read Lord of the Rings, you may or may not be familiar with the fact that a large part of the ending wasn’t included in the movies - the Scouring of the Shire. You can read more about it in this post, but basic idea is that, when the hobbits arrived…
I hadn’t given that much thought to this before which is a shame because it’s great.
