Amidst all the discussion about coping with the very hot weather, one thing has not been mentioned: the problem of cold supermarkets.

Whenever I go into one, a few steps take me from the tropics to the Arctic.

Being of a timorous disposition, and fearing catching a chill, I take with me a slip-on pullover.

I put this on as I enter, and take it off as I leave. Other people may catch colds, but not me.
