Affairs

Dear Economist,

My wife knows that my conference-going activities enable me to carry on a long-standing affair. Now she has the opportunity to exact her revenge: I am continuing the dalliance at a conference abroad, but my wife says she plans to bring some girlfriends to holiday in the same place. It would be a catastrophe if she were to make a scene by introducing them to my mistress, which is clearly her intention. I cannot hide. My mistress will demand to be taken out, and there are only one and a half decent restaurants in the town. Can you assist?

Yours sincerely,

“Mr Smith”, London
