I Spent Today Coming of Age

So look out.

Bilbo was going to be eleventy-one, 111, a rather curious number and a very respectable age for a hobbit (the Old Took himself had only reached 130); and Frodo was going to be thirty-three, 33, an important number: the date of his ‘coming of age’.

  3. Happy Birthday!

    OOO, that means I’m coming of age Monday. I like that much better than my kids’ version, which shall go unrepeated. :)
