We were always going to do that, weren't we? ;-)

On a serious note, though, what's advisable during a heatwave is the opposite: a hot drink. Yup! :-) Please, don't look at me like that. :-D I, too, used to think that heat equalled a cold drink, but a hot drink (after the initial shock of putting something hot in your body when it's already 30+ degrees Celsius in the shade) makes the pores open up. Believe me, after a while, you start feeling cooler. :-)
