Eureka...Euphemania

Mom definitely has the luck of the Irish. You might want to rub her noggin' before betting any money on anything.
Her name was randomly drawn in another give away.
In December, Ms. J (aka Miss Cindi Lou's Mom) sponsored this fun drawing for informative book. We thank you very much.
Mr. Webster defines a Euphemism: as a substitute of an agreeable or inoffensive expression for one that may offend or suggest something unpleasant.

After I realized it was for Mom, I gave it a sniff to see if, per chance, Miss Cindi Lou left me a message. 
Mom decided we should read the first chapter,
"Mincing Words".  
Mom was laughing out loud a lot.
As for me, once I realized there was a story  about chicken my interest peaked.  It is short so we'll share it with you.
"During a dinner party in Virginia before World War II, Sir Winston Churchill asked the butler for some *breast of chicken.  According to his family, a woman sitting next to him reprimanded him for using *this vulgar term.   He asked her what he should have asked for? She replied, 'White Meat'.  The next day he sent the woman a corsage with a message, "Pin this on your 'white meat'. MOL now that paints a vivid mental picture.

MOM MY EYES ARE TIRED FROM ALL THE
READING...I'M OFF TO TAKE A NAP
