    I am not up for it?

    I heard this conversation on the television:

    A: I am sorry to tell you that for personal reasons, I will not be able to attend the farewell lunch.

    B: This lunch is for you.

    A: I am not up for it. I want to leave quietly.

    What does "not up for it" means?

    Re: I am not up for it?

    "Be up for" indicates a sense of willingness to do or interest in doing something, so probably a synonym would be "be interested in".
