Are you conspicuous by your absence?


'... and if you decide not to turn up then you will be conspicuous by your absence.' Is an extract from the end of an email I received, it's nonsensical to me, and doesn't make any sense. My understanding of the word 'conspicuous' is something that is clearly visible, striking to the eye, lavish and note worthy. In my understanding, my absence may well be noteworthy but certainly not conspicuous!
