Maori's elegant answer to a tricky question

At the breakfast table, the question arose: what do you say when your intimate partner gets you undressed and notices that you're, well, clean-shaven someplace you weren't before? Do you wait for them to say something, do you offer an explanation, what?

Princess suggests: say you were feeling frisky.

me: don't say anything. Pretend nothing is unusual.

Maori: No, don't say anything. When he--or she-- says something, look down and shriek.

Then start shaking your jeans out.
