If your dog is barking at the back door and your wife is yelling at the front door, who do you let in first? The dog, of course. He'll shut up once you let him in.

Ok, you are both technically correct! points for both!

First Gandalf placed a mark on the door to let the dwarves know which hobbit hole to come to, and when Gandalf arrived later the next day he smudged/marred the mark he had previously made.
