Meeting an old friend from the WI for lunch she explained that the lecturer that was supposed to be going to give a talk on sexual relationships had cancelled, and asked me to deputise or the ladies from the institute would be disappointed, apparently it was a sell-out and refunds would be a pain.
so i did my best and if i say so myself i think i pulled it off.
my wife met me just as i was about to escape the crowd asking why i was so late?,
when i explained; she asked what subject id been talking on, "aviation" i said off the top of my head.
just then the crowd engulfed us congratulating me on my lecture.
i slunk off in shame when my wife expressed surprise i knew anything about it as id only been up twice and been sick with fear both times.
never lie to the wife.
