Regret, Resignation Day
I would truly love to attend the farewell dinner with you my corporate brethren and our dear benefactress from the central office.
Thank you for the invitation, but I promised my wife I would bring home a new fly swatter and I must spend some time in the hardware store selecting the very best one.
