When the temperature hovered in the 90s (fahrenheit) grumpy old Sid Ball, one of our English compositors had a sure fire way of getting to sleep on those stinking hot nights.
He would put his sheets in the freezer compartment of his old fridge.
When cold he would quickly put them on his bed hoping to be asleep before they got hot again.
He would also do the same with his shirts freezing them overnight to be worn the next day.
They say Sid came up with this brilliant idea after watching a television commercial from the late 1950s.
Sounds like bullshit to me…
