Euphemistically absent

There is rich seam of euphemisms from which to choose when you  try to contact somebody at work and they have gone to the loo:

  • stepped away from their desk
  • in a meeting
  • stepped out for a minute
  • out the back

Take your pick. However, Preacher’s A to Z is avoiding euphemism today and coming right out with it- I’ve gone to the loo over at Toilet Twinning and left a post there instead.
