Oh, my! What nasty minds we have! A creative, humorous description of a newcomer's initiation into one of the more bizarre, unnatural customs of Men. The double-entendre lines are priceless: “Put the tip in your mouth and suck gently,”; “No! You’ll choke if you take that much in all at once,” I laughed myself silly over this story, and still go back and reread it often.

OH! This is absolutely delightful. Of course I was horrified about what the Rangers might be doing with each other around the campfire - of course they don't do that in Imladris *G* I especially loved Gandalf, and who better to teach than the Master. Very well done!

Very amusing. A very clever story, the way you have allowed the reader to missunderstand what it going on until the very end makes it really amusing.

This is one of those stories where someone overhears something and thinks it's something totally different. Only this time it's us doing the overhearing, and I'm quite glad it wasn't what it sounded like! Good twist! Deftly done.

Throughout I knew this wasn't what it appeared to be -- from the category if nothing else. Yet you kept me guessing until the very end about just what it was about. Well done.

This is a great big wink, cleverly written.
