“This tastes revolting!” Aragorn struggled not to spit out the vile brew.
“My ale tastes no better.” Faramir grimaced at his mug.
“Something must have gone awry with the brewing,” said the landlord. “I did tell the lad to put plenty of malt in it.”
“I thought you said salt,” said the kitchen boy. “My ma tells me to put plenty in the stew when we've company, so when you told me the King and Lord Faramir were visiting, I added double!”
Aragorn laughed. “I hope this comedy of errors will have taught you to listen properly in future.”
