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.
