*Scene shows peaceful day in Rivendell, waterfalls rushing, golden tree leaves gleaming, water trickling, lords reading, elflings playing, elves working... ect, ect, ect. You get the point.*
*Fellowship, Elrond, Erestor, Glorfindel, and Arwen all standing outside enjoying the scenery, which also spells out the word "Boredom." With the exception of Legolas. Not to pick on him. Frodo is swatting away imaginary flies and Pippin is holding back imaginary yawns.*
Aragorn: I have an idea. Let's start a story.
Arwen: That's an excellent idea.
Elrond: You would agree... I say that we do something else to cure our boredom. Why don't we... ah... go hunting in the forest!
Elrond: *pouts* Whatever.
Pippin: I agree with Strider.
Pippin: *whispers to Merry* I knew his hearing was bad... *clears throat* Strider, Gandalf.
Gandalf: Who's that?
Aragorn: You've... no... you've forgotten me?!?
Gandalf: No, of course not. But who is Strider?
Aragorn: *sighs* Me, Gandalf.
Gandalf: Oh! Okie dokie then! Hey hey hey let's play!
Aragorn: I'll start, then we'll go clockwise to Arwen, Boromir, Pippin, Merry, Sam, Frodo, Ganalf, Elrond, Glorfindel, Erestor, Gimli, and Legolas.
Legolas: Why do I always have to be last?
Aragorn: That was just the way the lembas crumbled.
Pippin: You brought lembas? You didn't say anything about that!
Aragorn: It's an expression, Pippin. Like... ah... "Out of the blue."
Pippin: You got lembas from out of the blue? The blue what?
Gandalf: Like, "You fool of a Took."
Aragorn: Ah... sure. Now, since this is supposed to be zen for our reader, and not an literature class, let's continue.
Erestor: I thought you said this was a literature class, Estel...
Aragorn: That was only to get you out here. And I'm not a chi- *catches glance from Legolas*
Aragorn: *Clears throat* Anyhow. Let's let the zen begin.
