Heat and Cold

When we talked about heat and cold in class, I found it interesting how there are so many different interpretations and metaphors for heat and cold. One particular example of these that I found particularly interesting was the difference between “cool” and “cold.” In reality, there is not too big of a difference between these temperatures. However, I know that I would much rather be called cool than cold. “Cool” can be described as someone real. They are not afraid to be themselves and do not care what others think. I would take being called “cool” as a compliment. Being called “cold,” on the other hand, is an insult. If you are “cold,” you can be described as having no emotions or heartless. It is so amazing that temperatures that many not differ too differently can connotate completely different things.
