Polite follow-up phrase to "Where is the bathroom?"

The older we get, the more important this sentence becomes.

There have been times while I was still on the toilet that I've made an utterance that sounds quite similar to "KAWASAKI!"

I believe you can see an encore performance at Lift Station No. 16. See Dave for the schedule.

That must be a confusing phrase for non-English speakers because, when you think about it, one hasn't taken anything but has instead left something. Really, one ought to say, "I just left a dump," or, "I just dropped the kids off at the pool." "I just took the Browns to the Super Bowl" is also acceptable.

I can think of at least a dozen job interview questions where that phrase might be useful.

When your hovercraft is full of eels, this will help you make sushi.

He turned me into a newt.
