But I am NOT complaining. I’m just saying: It’s hot.
And in England…when the heat is on…you sit down and have a nice cup of tea.
An English person will tell you that they are “gasping for a cup of tea” on the hottest day of the year. It’s the only thing that will do in times of extreme heat — as well as extreme cold or when under stress or if you feel happy or sad or tired or excited. During good times and bad…a cup of tea takes care of many things.
Now you know.
