Looking for a hot time?

When pondering a personal situation, I often find I have the munchies. After careful consideration, I realized today's personal situation required corn chips and salsa, so I head to Tesco's. Hmm, two brands. One is this "gourmet" pesto and purple basil crap with so much sugar it would pass for tomato pudding.

So I reach for the other salsa and pause -- do I want mild, medium, or hot? And then the cultural adviser in the back of my head whispered, "you're in the UK, moron." The word "hot" is used in the sense I might use the word lithe to describe Roseanne Barr: by strict definition it might be true, but don't bet on it.

Sure enough, I get home and am dipping my corn chips in chunky ketchup. I would kill for one of those craptastic Mexican diner cheese enchilada and refried beans dinners.
