THE trouble with our captains of industry is that they toil in the cause of the mighty dollar at great risk to their health. But thankfully, behind every successful businessman is a loyal and dutiful secretary waiting to carry out his every bidding. Thus it was that a certain entrepreneur undergoing a routine medical check found himself on the way to Kai Tak and a flight to Singapore on the very morning he was due to provide a sample of urine to a medical laboratory. Over the car phone he discussed his predicament with his secretary and requested her to handle the matter as discreetly as possible. Which in her customary efficient and dedicated manner she apparently did. The lab report has now come back informing the (red-faced) businessman that he is in the early stages of pregnancy.
