How many words can you think of for...

BATHROOM? This how many words game is something The Girls and I have been known to play. On occasion. Usually when we are all in the car. Maggie is the least willing participant. It's usually for something there are lots of "inappropriate" words for.

But I often think when I ask where the restroom is in a public place that lots of people ask where the "bathroom" is. Which is technically incorrect. Since a bathroom should have a bath. Or a means to wash ones body. So it got me thinking about how many different terms there are for the bathroom. Here's what I've come up with:

  1. bathroom
  2. restroom
  3. water closet
  4. loo
  5. shitter
  6. crapper
  7. biffy (if it's outside)
  8. ladies room
  9. powder room
And now I'm stuck. I thought I had come up with more when I was pondering this the other night. But either I didn't come up with as many as I thought or I've forgotten them. So if you know of more leave a comment!!!

In my defense, it's usually because the subject is inappropriate.
Anyway, I will add what my Grandma says, toity. Not sure it's spelled right, but I use it all the time.
