My computer must've eaten it. Oh well, not one of my wittier posts anyhow.

That coincidence is kind of funny...

Oddly enough people are very accepting when they have to stay out of big brother's business, but when it comes to my business it is often a different story.

Just tell them you are deep undercover and if you discuss it you will have to eliminate them.

Or, tell them you got an offer from a competing gov't too share some info that was too good to refuse; and your new boss, Boris, prefers you don't discuss it.

OTOH, that might be a bit dangerous. Could be taken seriously.

On the whole, I think telling people I am DW's CFO is better.

Only if DW agrees. Otherwise you might prefer to have the gov't after you, vs her wrath.

I get the impression that your DW operates a home business. I think it will be difficult for people not to see your new "CFO" position (or whatever cover story you make up) as a big step down from your current job which sounds prestigious. I doubt that it will do much to stop the new career suggestions and business opportunities from coming.

After 3 years of "unemployment", I spend less and less time polishing my cover story. I am very comfortable with my decision to not work. It was not the case at the beginning. Many people criticized my decision and the cover story was a way to deflect those criticisms. Today those criticisms have proven unfounded so the cover story has lost its purpose.
