She meant "cool" as in preventing overheating, as in what happens when you wear many layers of clothes in a non-arctic environment for a while, as she indicated above. I wonder how I could have written it to avoid such confusion? Oh well, easily corrected for...] >>"Am I missing something?" Keaton asked. >> >>"What do you mean?"

And I can be your costume when we're not in competition."
