This is a question Common

Freddy Woo writes, "My wife thinks calling the front room a lounge is common. Worse, a friend of hers recently admonished her daughter for calling a toilet, a toilet. Lavatory darling. It's lavatory."

My own mother refused to let me use the word 'oblong' instead of 'rectangle'. Which is just odd, to be honest.

What stuff do you think is common?

It wouldn't occur to me to call ketchup 'tomato ketchup' (I do know that mushroom ketchup exists/-ed, but still it amused me)

If you've got a brown sauce...
like HP... then it makes sense that what's not the brown sauce is the red sauce.
