12. Day Eleven - two hobbits pranking Gandalf (Merry, Pippin)
With Frodo at a "secret" meeting, Merry and Pippin moped around. When it occurred to them that Rivendell had more sleeping rooms than even Brandybuck Hall, they had to try and surpass their record.
Walking down the upper corridor, Merry regaled Pippin with the state of his cousin's crops, casually opened the door to Gandalf's room and stepped inside. They had already visited Elrond's room, and several other rooms on this corridor, and had hours yet until dinner.
They made a good team, Merry thought; Pippin as deft as a housemaid at smoothing the covers back over the shortened sheets.
