See my comment above s.v. #have a bathe.—msh210 17:37, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

Keep, this doesn't mean "own a bath". "bath" doesn't even have a verb entry at this time, quite rightly IMO. Kappa 08:48, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
 ?? If you'll take a quick look at google books:have, you'll notice that have usually doesn't mean "own". Even if you restrict it to google books:"have a", not one of the top ten hits means "own". Also, you seem to believe that in the phrase "have a bath", bath is a verb? If so, then that belief is mistaken; if not, then sorry, but I don't understand what you're trying to say. —RuakhTALK 14:40, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
I've just added the verb sense to bath, supported by three citations spanning 17 years. Thryduulf 10:41, 18 May 2008 (UTC)
Keep per fancy dress test. Sounds awkward to Americans. DAVilla 05:48, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

Kept - certainly is awkward and idiomatic to Americans. A bit like have a laugh sounds awkward to Americans too. --Jackofclubs 12:09, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
