You can create a personal force-field, protecting you from all manner of corporate nonsense.

First you have to hold up your end at work. Second, you shouldn't be obviously spending a lot of time or making a lot of money at your "side line" or then it is considered competitive with your job, and also leads both to curiosity and jealousy, Third you should, whether you consider it "acting unhinged' or a "personal force-field" or just diversionary tactics, do it with a flourish or what I would call "hiding in plain sight." "Sleight of hand."

The wife provides a nice cover and explanation for many things. Besides, she is quite charming and that is a very good diversion in itself. ((She is always a good excuse, readily accepted.))
