A Bio Break
Today it seems that more and more people are talking about taking ‘bio breaks‘.
If you’ve never heard the term before, it means having a break for a short time so that you can go to the bathroom or the restroom.
Bathroom or restroom? Ah, those are ‘nice’ words for the ‘toilet’.
You might also hear people talk about the washroom, the lavatory, the ladies’ and the gents’, or the boys’ room and the girls’ room.
We used to say that we’re going to “spend a penny” or “powder our noses”.
Now doesn’t that sound polite? 😉
