He deals with society WAGs, expats and A-listers over slices of toast (whole wheat) and scrambled eggs, everyone is always 15 minutes away -- so waiting is second nature. But the job has its perks too -- party invitations, supermodel friends and the occasional bottle of single malt whisky.

I ask him instead.

She lurks in disguise as a friend/sibling/cousin/aunt/neighbour/random person you just met an hour ago.
