i'm always amazed at how cogniscent i am of things when i travel. as i sit here on the plane i wonder why the heck the flight attendants still refer to it as a lavatory. i mean, i get it of course, with regard to the avaiation terms (just like when i'm diving it is port/startboard as opposed to the left/right). but, for real, can't we just say bathroom/restroom? heck i'll even take water closet.
i think at home i'm going to start saying lavatory and just see how my family and neighbors react.
excuse me tim, where's the bathroom?
oh you mean the lavatory, it's over there.
yeah, it sounds stupid. can we please update our use of terms?
