I was at a once in a lifetime corporate hospitality at a premier football game and I got an urgent call from the wife saying her mum’s been hit by a bus and has only hours to live.
Fifteen minutes later, I’m at the hospital and the wife’s hugging me. “Thank-you darling, I’m so sorry you’ll miss your football.”
“Don’t worry, love, I wouldn’t miss this – I’m taping it and I’ll watch it later.”
God knows why she got so upset when I started setting up the camcorder.
