The use of language

Today a friend of mine and I had a discussion of the use of language particularly when it applied to bodily functions.

Needless to say, we were on opposite sides. I personally preferred to use more genteel language as I was brought up that way. It is certainly not lady-like to use such terms as "s h t "now or ever was!

Another friend who was with us must have thought we had lost our minds, discussing such a messy topic!

I'm afraid this friend of mine and I must agree to disagree. I will continue to use genteel language as I am comfortable with that form of communication, while alas, he will probably continue to use his own method of communication!
