Winston Churchill once attended a formal banquet in London, where the dignitaries were asked the question, "If you could not be who you are, who would you like to be?" Naturally everyone was curious as to what Churchill, who was seated next to his beloved Clemmie, would say. When it was finally his turn, the old man, the last respondent to the question, rose and gave his answer.

"If I could not be who I am, I would most like to be..." and here he paused to take his wife’s hand, "...Lady Churchill's second husband."

Churchill was a very clever man. He was also a most devoted man--a "one-woman man"--despite his other proclivities.
