Powder My Nose

Euphemism for using the restroom. A friend has used this expression for years and now only taps his nose to exuse himself. See also Bathroom.

I've only heard this one used for a cocaine reference.

"Powder My Nose," refers to the fact that restrooms used to be commonly referred to as "powder rooms" because women use it to check and touch up their make up if necessary. I have never heard it used for cocaine.

I think there is an example of it being used that way in the film Pulp Fiction. Maybe it used to mean doing your makeup and then came to mean having a slash but the allusion to cocaine use is definitely in there.

Oh, for pete's sake - it's most definitely a cocaine reference! Anyone who's ever been exposed to illicit drugs would see your friend "tapping his nose" and assume he's inviting you to go snort a line with him in the bathroom.
