other room in the house. (For what it's worth, though, we simply called the
toilet "the toilet." For some reason, my mother considered the term "commode"
Although I don't remember ever hearing the toilet/commode variation
discussed, I think your mother's attitude was probably not unusual.

happy that I would have passed your mother's social test --
I've always said "toilet"
