In the 80th we had a senior physician who
smoked the cheapest cigarillos whereever
he went or stood. If you needed to find him,
you only had to follow the stink.

In germany female nurses are called "Schwester" (=sister).
Male nurses are called "Pfleger" (~caregiver).
The officially term for both is "Gesundheits- und Krankenpfleger"
(~health- and sicknesscare) ... short: "GuK" (since the 1990th).
"Guk" has never prevailed in spoken language.
I use a calenderbook. 10x8 inches and nearly 2 inches thick. 1 page for every day. Looks important - for real - when I enter a date. And it works even at a blackout. And if the page is full ~~~ itÂ´s full.
