Sticky Social Situations

On Guardian Unlimited Talk, someone asked for ways to handle a potentially dreary social occasion.
It was suggested arranging for one's mobile phone to ring, and saying loudly into it: "Dead? When? How? I'll be there at once."
On the other hand, if you were actually enjoying yourself, you could say: "Dead? When? How? Well, he won't mind waiting then, will he?"
