The heat must have got to me I'm rambling a bit more than usual.
I know the reason it stopped but I can't remember when it stopped . There was a time when people poured this exotic oily stuff all over their bodies and lay in the sun until they got a nice healthy crimson. The stuff almost unknown in the UK at one time it was called olive oil , I know other people went for the cheaper option that was made from the stuff they put in chip fryers it was still a little bit exotic as most of us put a big heathly lump of lard in the frying pans when cooking.
The way those pavement have got very hot today it only a matter of time before a street food vender starts going for fuel free cooking , I know you could fry an egg on the pavement so there's a possibility you could do the same for a sausage and a burger, it's the chestnuts Id worry about sitting on the floor.
With all the heat radiating from the pavement you still see people walking their dogs out in the hottest part of the day and see them having a nice cooling drink but totally forgetting their dogs
