    taking a shower is right. "having a shower" sounds like you're a giant pud. do canadians say that? i heard wheels say it once.

    I liked when older relatives would tell me to "warsh my teeth" before going to bed.

    This is a trick question. Canadians don't bathe. They are Nouveau French.

    the original degrassi jr high and degrassi high were the bomb.

    Why do we say "taking a shit"? :dontknow:

    We're not taking anything. We're leaving something. If you "take" something with you, you're doing it wrong. Pretty sure.
