Hey, how about a nice steaming hot cup of coffee?
Are you crazy?
It's 100 degrees outside!!!
No, I am not crazy.
Personally, I would never touch the stuff when the thermometer hits triple digits.
But I know plenty of others do.
I have witnessed the incredible control coffee has over a human being and wrote about it in Culinary no-no #120.
The quest for high-powered coffee didn’t stop on Wednesday, the hottest day of the year. I observed coffee freaks sitting outside Alterra.
If they were having iced coffee, fine. Wait a minute. Not so fine. Why are you sitting outside in 100 degree weather sipping coffee, hot or iced? Does AC turned on turn you off?
An old TV sitcom episode comes to mind (and forgive me, I don’t remember which one) where a character mentioned you consume hot drink to cool you off, that it was physics.
Do hot drinks cool you down, because if they do, I’m doing it all wrong.
Here’s the answer at about.com.
I have also seen a number of folks dining under umbrellas outside at popular restaurants this hellish week.
It makes absolutely no sense.
For heaaven's sake, drink your $4 latte and eat your spinach salad INSIDE!
