I Don’t See What Is So Strange About It

An old friend was staying over.  I inflated an air mattress in the living room to be used as a bed.  Before retiring to my bedroom with my pets, I turned to my guest.

“Would you care for a dog or a gun while you sleep?”

They looked at me askance.

“What a strange question!  Why would I want dogs or guns?” they asked.

“For comfort.” I replied.

I think I’m a pretty good host.  After all, I’m always considerate of my guest’s peace of mind.

  1. I think the perfect answer would be, “I’ll take a dog. I’ve already got my gun.”

    Firearms have their uses, but if it comes down to which protects me better in my sleep, I’m going to have to go with the dog, hands down.

    While I can’t argue with any of these comments, I believe the best response might be: Both. The dog to protect we while I sleep and the gun so I can back the dog up.

    Reminds me of the old one, “It’s a cold night so we’ve put an extra dog on the bed.”
