Keeping Cool and Paying the Cafe

Our A/C has been running pretty consistently this week, and we have a month to go before it's officially summer. If you're a writer having trouble staying cool during a heatwave, now's definitely the time to hang out at Starbucks or any other cafe to stay cool. Yeah, I know it's a cliche, but for us older folks, keeping cool is a necessity!

But make sure you're reimbursing the cafe. My rule of thumb is $3-5 per hour you're there.

Caffeinated drinks can dehydrate you, and sugary drinks don't help with your waistline. I often buy a large ice tea and a bottle of water from the cafe. I also plan to visit for breakfast or lunch. Why? Because 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. are generally the hottest time of the day.

I know this may seem silly, but temperatures are rising around the world. No one's going to be immune from the effects. So take care of yourself and stay cool.
