In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.
Summary of discussion
We agree that the hobbit lifestyle and meal plan (7 a day!) seems to lend itself to a happy, carefree lifestyle.
