My other half currently has a minor skin complaint that requires a fresh dressing every day, after showering.
The conversation went something like this:
"Could you put the pasta on?"
"But won't it get wet if I do it before you go in the shower?"
"What are you on about? Of course I won't take it into the shower"
"But you will if I put it on beforehand"
"No, I won't. Why would I take the pasta into the shower?"
Listen out for the penny dropping:
"Did you say pasta or plaster?"
You probably had to be there...
