Process of Elimination

Everything associated with babies is usually considered cute and adorable, including the elimination of body waste. Call it what you will: potty, or doody, boom boom or poopy, but at some point in life the cozy euphemisms no longer apply. When is that all-important moment when snuggly slang metastasizes into a clinical word like stool? Read about it (here).


  1. The last time I heard it personally, was when my mother had surgery. Later she had to take stool softeners.

  2. ha. i think it is funny that a stool is also something we sit on, you know
    wonder how that got chosen....

    i have used the word before but i am trying to remember the context...ha
