Another another question about dialogue

Another another question about dialogue Can't Post

Or perhaps more of a comment. But again in Minas Tirith before the siege,Pippin is sitting with Beregond his new friend and says that 'waiting hungry on others while they eat,' is a sore trial for a Hobbit. But then he seems to moderate himself and say that 'No doubt you will think I should feel the honour more deeply,' Now, I have often wondered if Beregond gives him a little look here to say that it's about time Pippin got more serious about things!

I can certainly imagine it that way [In reply to] Can't Post

On the other hand it also works for me to imagine Pippin anticipating the little look, or just realising how out of place his comment might sound.

Where's that old read-through discussion?
A wonderful list of links to previous chapters in the 2014-2016 LOTR read-through (and to previous read-throughs) is curated by our very own 'squire' here http://users.bestweb.net/...-SixthDiscussion.htm

life experience [In reply to] Can't Post

I have not think of anything from that comment by Pippin. Now I think it is Tolkien's own experience in the trenches of France.

He might have remembered [In reply to] Can't Post

Gandalf telling him that morning: "remember you have brought this upon yourself" (quoting from memory; probably wrong)
