A great story, Bethany! But hey, everybody, I was talking
tongue-in-cheek when I offered alternatives to 'butt'; I suspect my
childhood 'seat' (our family's unmarked term) and 'rear end' (a bit
more risque) might be equally offensive to other people. It's hard for
us oldtimers to adjust to new terms, esp. those for body parts; the
word in question has just always sounded "bad" to me--strictly an
aesthetic judgment.

I can't quite get used to "We're gonna kick butt!" myself.
