Here's an idea that has worked for me in the past and you might want to give it a try:
Let's say that you wake up on a work day and you find that the wife has pulled off the blankets and you pull them back. Then you notice how very little she has on. One thing leads to another and you wind up being late for work.
When the boss glances at the clock, just tell him that you had just gotten a little behind.
