LOL!  Let's see, Teonaht:  Kwa'r perva li ... bav memwot?

I just asked for the water room.  I can't believe that I have no word
for
toilet in Teonaht.  And then all the politeness conventions.  You can't
just baldly say "where's the shit stool?"  There have to be
circumlocutions,
idioms, metaphors.  Any suggestions or conlang examples?
