Excuse No. 75

I’m non-gourmet meal intolerant.

How to sell it

1. Have a small sack marked “truffles” jutting ever so slightly out of your carry-on.

2. Find an unscrupulous medical professional to write a note verifying your claim.

3. Note should say: “Patient is non-gourmet meal intolerant. Please upgrade immediately.”
