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"
