Sometimes you just have to be in my house to get it, but here goes.  My 12 year old has Aspergers and is wildly imaginative.  He loves fantasy, videogames, movies, and books.  My wife is a fourth grade teacher and absolutely rooted in bedrock.

Today he's been playing one of the Lord of the Rings games.  He took time out for The Two Towers this afternoon.

So he's sitting around playing the game again, and he asks his mom, "How often do you think about what it would be like to live in Middle-Earth?"

I sat quietly in my office, working, and just laughed.

I think about this probably a lot more than I should. It's all because of the awesomeness of The Hobbit.

Jaimie Krycho said... mean not everyone thinks about what that would be like on a daily basis?

There's no hope for me. ;)
