Stupid question, but how do you lock exposure, then choose your focus point?

Sorry for this stupid question, but I've been trying to figure this out.

If I use spot metering, choose what I want to spot meter, press and hold AE lock, how do I then go on to choose my focus point (this is of course because my right thumb is already holding the AE lock button and I can't move the joystick because of this)?

Or do I have to choose my focus point first? But then I would not be able to choose where to spot meter as I've already half-pressed the shutter.
