By Isaac Azimov.
A couple are to play host to a visiting alien dignitary. How does one make a guest comfortable who comes from a race of cyanide breathing creatures? The alien sits… er… stands because it isn’t anatomically constructed to sit, and relaxes in the home of the security official, enjoying a beverage laced with ethyl alcohol.
Why is the alien here? To study this queer planet we call earth. On Hawkins planet the aliens never stop growing, and don’t actually die, at least not unless outside forces are at work. What interest might the alien have in visiting a police station?
What unique features do humans that fascinate, and also are revolting to the Hawkins being? What is it that makes Mrs Smollot so suspicious of the alien… and her husband? What’s so important about knowing what the inhibition death is, and what does Rose know about it that her security force husband doesn’t?
