    I've got to drop the kids off at the pool.

    (I got that one from my sixteen year old son. He's a chip off the old block.)

    Hi,
    From The American Thesaurus of Slang:
    to cash a check
    I don't know whether it's common, though.

    I agree. However, this particular "euphemism," sounds vulgar to me. I prefer less colorful terms. How about "answering nature's call?"

    I'd say 99% of the "euphemisms" for this bodily function are pretty vulgar, and I think that's why folks (particularly men, not to put too fine a point on it) enjoy using them. My brothers and husband know that I'll wince at such references, so they never hesitate to say "I have to go lay some pipe" or "I'm going to go drop off some Huxtables" or some other grossness. Me, I think a simple "excuse me, where is the restroom?" or "I have to powder my nose" is explanation enough.
