So can you imagine Gandalf finding hobbits for the first time?

Like do-di-do walking through the trees and suddenly there are all these children everywhere in the woods and he’s judgingly looking around for the negligent parents before realizing that they are in fact adults and he’s just sort of swept up in their daily life and maybe he pulls out a pipe and they all want to try this new thing and before you know it, 16 generations later all the hobbits are smoking pipes and now whenever he’s sad he just goes where all the funny little people just enjoy their day and smoke and drink beer.
