English to Catalan translations [PRO] / colloquial anecdote
English term or phrase:shower
In an anecdote set in a steam room, one person asks another if they are ready for the shower. She thinks he means "ducha" - he actually means the stream of water that falls from the ceiling when the door is opened. Is there any way of implying both these things with one Catalan word? Help!
Explanation: I can't think of any expression that keeps the "joke" sense and the "shower" but we have the expression "caure com una jerra d'aigua freda", which means that something very disapointing happened.
In catalan "shower" is "(una) dutxa"
Espero que et serveixi!!
