I Want To Be Just Like ...

IV. Cue: Role Models



I Want to Be Just Like ...


If you asked him, young Bilbo wished to be just like his father Bungo Baggins: steady, trustworthy, dependable, predictable; responsible. After all, everybody in Hobbiton respected Bungo Baggins, whose one unpredictable act had been to marry Belladonna Took.

But after trips to visit his grandfather, Thain Gerontius, sometimes Bilbo wished to be like Grandda instead.

“Belladonna, your son is playing at dragons and treasure again!”
