The theme of a cross-dresser being caught in the act by his wife or girlfriend (or anyone, really) is another common trope in TG fiction. As traumatic and potentially disastrous as that could well be, I’ve always thought the situation had considerable scope for humor. As the saying goes, blessed are we who can laugh at ourselves, for we shall never cease to be amused. (Trust me, it’s a healthy thing to do.) By the way, in this context prevaricate means to lie brazenly, shamelessly and without pause for thought. Enjoy!
