Is this a male-only expression, or can women use it, too? do women have other ways to get across the same message? if there are, can you list them?I've got to take a leak
Women would say more like:
"I have to tinkle"
"Time for a pee-pee break"
"I have to powder my nose"...
generally it is not quite the "lady-like" thing to say anything other than excuse me and just go to the bathroom!
Men are the ones that seem to make more of a production and advise people that they are going to go "shake a lizard", "see a man about a horse" (usually used when they are going outside to relieve themselves), and the "take a leak", "water the garden", etc. etc.
Very funny expression.
"I gotta take a piss" does this one have the same meaning?
