“Peeing on daddy” contest?, part 2

Mother-in-law has arrived from GDR (German Democratic Republic) and is taking over the parental care. Our son has learned some new moves, e.g. he finally learned how to pee on others, viz. on his mommy and his grandma. The current status is as following:

  • Daddy: 4
  • Grandma: 1
  • Mommy: 1

Yesterday I learned that Kreißsaal, German for delivery room, has nothing to do with Kreis, German for circle. I had a picture of a circular room and I was sure I had seen it many times on TV and this picture was burned into my head. However, after a lunch conversation at work and a lesson at home from our sons grandma, who is a nurse, I had to admit that I was wrong. I always wrote it as Kreisssaal and not as Kreißsaal, with an “ß“, which can most of the time be exchanged with an “ss”, but not here! So “kreißen” (to be in labour) is the outdated version of “kreischen” (to screak or scream) and hence has nothing to do with Kreis (circle). This is just for clarity and for the case that some other German daddy is out there and wondering why his wife is not delivering in a circular room, but in a normal (squared) room.
