Take or grab?

I remember one time in college a couple of guys got into a discussion over whether it was “take a shower” or “grab a shower.” The grab guy stated that taking something meant you … took it with you, something you don’t do with a shower. But the take guy countered asking if you “take a [crude word for Number 2]” or do you “grab a [crude word for Number 2]?” I don’t think it was ever resolved.

I think when you say " ill grab a shower' it means its done in a hurry while if you "take a shower" i imagine it being a cool relaxing shower wherein youre just taking your time and enjoying it.

For me the right to say is to take rather than to grab, because grab is not appropriate on the word.
