Thanks aurora, floots, and polona.

There's truth here... btw, I'll still drink it even when it's cold (however I don't put cream and sugar in it...).

of coffee gone cold—

Coffee and Summer are both still hot here. When the temps start to drop I'll microwave the coffee, and wish Summer was already back.
