Let’s just say that my wife is a huge “While You Were Out” (and “Trading Spaces”) fan, and I’ve thought of possibly trying to get on the show. Not that I would be able to, but should the amazing opportunity present itself, I wonder how I would be able to trick my wife into leaving for two days. Since we’re not often separated, anything that I would suggest (e.g. “Hey dear, why don’t you go visit your brother and sister-in-law for a few days while I stay home and be lazy”) would arouse her suspicions.
So, how would I handle this? What kind of story could I concoct to get her out of the house for two days without making her suspicous?
