How do I hide a hangover while I’m basically dying at my desk?
The oh-so-delicious morning-after panic: you were only supposed to be popping out for a swift Thai and one glass of sav blanc but, once that kicked in, you opened a second bottle, hit the bars and everything went downhill. But now it’s 7am, your alarm is beating you over the head, you’re still fully clothed (yep, shoes too) and it’s time to go to work. How do you hide the hang from your boss? Best bet is to do the exact opposite of what your brain is telling you: get to work early. Getting in before everyone else invites far fewer questions than turning up late. You’ll also need a good moisturiser and your strongest scent (to disguise the stench of regret). Your main aim? To keep shtum about your wild night. Once your co-workers get wind of your hang, you’ll be faced with hourly “how are you bearing up, babes” queries, which will only make it worse. If your boss follows you on Instagram, do a quick scan to make sure you didn’t post a picture of last night’s bar bill. Never forget.
