A meal he intends to miss

          "Lady Swaffham rang up, my lord, and said she hoped your lordship had not forgotten you were lunching with her."
          "I have forgotten, Bunter, and I mean to forget. I trust you told her I had succumbed to lethargic encephalitis suddenly, no flowers by request."

(from Whose Body? by Dorothy L. Sayers)
