Gentleman. A man who buys two of the same morning paper from the doorman of his favorite nightclub when he leaves with his girl.
A new kind of award has been added—the deathbed award. It is not an award of any kind. Either the recipient has not acted at all, or was not nominated, or did not win the award the last few times around. It is intended to relieve the guilty conscience of the Academy members and save face in front of the public. The Academy has the horrible taste to have a star, choking with emotion, present this deathbed award so that there can be no doubt in anybody’s mind why the award is so hurriedly given. Lucky is the actor who is too sick to watch the proceedings on television.

Do let him read the papers. But not while you accusingly tiptoe around the room, or perch much like a silent bird of prey on the edge of your most uncomfortable chair. (He will read them anyway, and he should read them, so let him choose his own good time.) Don’t make a big exit. Just go. But kiss him quickly, before you go, otherwise he might think you are angry; he is used to suspecting he is doing something wrong.

Once a woman has forgiven her man, she must not reheat his sins for breakfast.
