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?

Oh, I love those magazines.
My mother buys them all and hands over a huge bundle of them every few weeks.

When I've read them I drop them off at the local court, where the cells staff remove the staples and give them to the prisoners to keep them quiet.

Gets boring down there - a little Life! Death! Prizes! goes a long way.
