The Top Six Ways To #StayCoolin6Words


The hotter it is, the more hotheaded we are! For SixContest #81, we wanted to learn your secrets for beating the heat and keeping your composure. While some seek the refreshment of adult beverages (“Gin and tonic. Maybe a couple.” —JRE23), others revert to tried-and-true practices (“Inner kid wisdom: try water balloons.” —JanAlexander). With no end to the rising temperatures and peak humidity in sight—for the foreseeable future—we all could use some extra cool.

Here’s the Top Six tips for how to #StayCoolin6Words:

6. “I’m staying as cool as Obama.” —JAD

5. “Best thoughts happen under cool showers.” —@FlorenceOnyang1 (via Twitter)

4. “Forgive the critic. Forgo the chatter.” —jeccaberta

3. “It’s always cold in the Supermarket…” —VIWJG

2. “No underwear and a confident attitude…” —canadafreeze

And the award for coolest cucumber goes to…

1. “Don’t go to bed angry, clothed.” —l8leigh
