Lesson for Today

To see a man, to see a man about a dog, or to see a man about a horse is an English language colloquialism, usually used as to apologize for one's imminent departure or absence – generally to euphemistically conceal one's true purpose, such as going to use the toilet or going to buy a drink.[1][2] The original non-facetious meaning was probably to place or settle a bet on a race, thus dogs or horses.
