Brings to mind that when my SD comes to visit, we have to go out and buy organic everything lest our regular food poison her. Not that I mind.

We wouldn't do it now but back in the day we'd actually have people we'd met at nightclubs come spend the night, and vice versa. It was usually just someone or a couple people we got to talking to and when last call came around we'd decide to move the party to our place since had beer in the fridge.

We never had any problems, and I even remember my wife once seizing someone's car keys for safekeeping that she was iffy about, but man I cringe when I think about the potential problems we opened ourselves up to.
