dear fahrenheit,

as i picked up a cold glass of water after drinking a hot cup of tea this morning at the airport, for the umpteenth time i remembered you. you always say mixing hot and cold water will damage my liver and ruin my teeth. i always remember that even though i keep forgetting to tell you i read somewhere that the hot tea, which increases blood pressure and heart rates can also help burn fat. the cold water, i read, reduces internal body temperature, which in turn burns calories and get it back to a stable 98 degrees fahrenheit. so, like you and i, mixing the hot and the cold is good for our wellbeing. here’s a cup of cold water to you, fahrenheit!
