Papi’s little helpers – Papis kleine Hilfen

In our family we are crazy about crossword puzzles. The first one who buys the magazine is the first one to start solving the crossword. Only when instructed to do so can the remaining family members join. Once everyone has put its bit we all together try to solve it. Sometimes I would get a late evening phone call, asking if I knew a river in Moldavia with 5 letters, starting with a P. Let me think… What was my surprise when recently, while I was looking for my dad and found him in his room, looking up on Google the answers for the questions he could not answer by looking it up in his Atlas or Lexica. As you can see, he was successful. Mami says he cheated. I think every aid is valid. And yes, we still use Tippex in our family.

Wir lieben Kreuzworträtsel in unserer Familie. Die Person, die die Zeitschrift oder Zeitung kauft, ist diejenige, die mit den Lösen anfangen darf. Erst nachdem man ausdrücklich dazu aufgefordert wurde, dürfen die restlichen Familienmitglieder ihren Teil dazu beitragen. Wenn wir uns dann alle einzeln dran versucht haben, gucken wir ob das Rätsel gemeinsam lösen können. Es kam schon manchmal vor, dass ich abends in Berlin angerufen werde, weil ja vielleicht weiss, wie z.B. ein Fluss in Moldawien heisst. Fünf Buchstaben. Fängt mit P an. Hmmmm… Letztens habe ich Papi gesucht, und welch war meine Überraschung, als ich ihn an seinem Schreibtisch sitzend fand, während er die Lösungen, bei denen er mit seinem Atlas und den Lexica nicht weiterkam, bei Google suchte. Wir Ihr sehen könnt, war er sehr erfolgreich. Mama meint er hat geschummelt. Ich glaube alle Hilfsmittel zählen. Und ja, in unserer Familie benutzen wir noch Tippex.
