Helpful things to say to your wife on the morning of the day that she is going to be reading in front of 1400 people:
'' You've got something on your face''
''What?''
''A zit''

I hold no truck with concealers, mostly through never having used one and fearing that they would accentuate the problem when used by my inept hands. However, happily a lifetime of colouring in the ladders in my tights has been preparing me for just this emergency. Out came the eyeliner and my zit has become a beauty spot.

Naturally I consider this the pinnacle of improvisational genius, but it still doesn't protect from the possibility of people coming up to me and suggesting in concerned tones that I get me to a dermatologist ASAP, because they don't know how to tell me this but I might have face cancer since my beauty spot is such an unnatural colour.
