A few days ago, at dawn, the time the Pope wakes up, he came out to the corridor, and he found in front of his door the sentry, a Swiss Guard standing with his halberd at attention.

He asked him: “And what are you doing here? Have you been up all night?”
Is it just me, or does this question make the Pope sound like a bit of an idiot? He has a guard outside his apartment every single night, a fact which is apparently well enough known to serve as the basis of a glurge. And yet the story claims that he walked outside one day and hadn't the faintest clue why this guard was standing in front of his door? Heck, just from knowing that the Pope is an high-profile public figure, it shouldn't be too hard to guess why there might be a guard standing outside his door.
