If Nature Calls, Take A Message

My coworker M moved to the US from Egypt six months ago, and although his English is very good, he occasionally has a few Balki Bartokomous moments, like the other day when I was supposed to meet him to discuss some work item I needed his help on.

M: "Chris, can we postpone the meeting for a few minutes, I need to make a call."
Me: "Sure, go for it."
M: "It is a... natural call..."
Me: "Um... a natural call?."
M: "I need to use the restroom."

Needless to say, it was an urgent call.
