What is your favorite euphemism?

•"Euphemisms are not, as many young people think, useless verbiage for that which can and should be said bluntly; they are like secret agents on a delicate mission, they must airily pass by a stinking mess with barely so much as a nod of the head. Euphemisms are unpleasant truths wearing diplomatic cologne."
(Quentin Crisp, Manners from Heaven, 1984)

My fav - Aunt Flo is visiting from Redland.

Urban Dictionary "Chick code for, "I have my period". Used in mixed company so as not to gross out any male innocents."

  • The word Period to mean menstrual cycle. Yes, it is a period of time, but so is a lot of things. Period is so super general... so lame.

  • Getting your "period" is actually a euphemism too. It's actual name is menstrual cycle.
