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?

I was all your mates' mothers!!
Lots of my kids' friends and cousins were forbidden ITV, unsuitable videos, fish fingers, tinned spaghetti and fizzy pop. Some didn't even have TV at home and wore hand-knitted muesli to school.

My kids were allowed all the above pleasures and when their mates came round, they'd all have tea together on a coffee table in front of The Young Ones video'd off t'telly.

I must admit to taking a certain pleasure in this insidious child corruption.

...on a coffee table? That's just not right, is it?

Far too much of a rebel to set the tea table.
