Why "hot" chips, Sally?  Is there something else which is "cold" chips?

This reminds me of my shock at discovering that it was necessary to ask for
"hot tea", and not merely "a cup of tea" in The South (US).   "Sweetened or
unsweetened?" often served as a reminder until I got into the habit of it.
