        Hot is a simple, easily understood word.So are most of the expressions made with the word hot. But not always, as we shall see.
  The expression hot potato, for example, gives you no idea at all to the meaning of it. The potato is a popular vegetable in the United States. Many people like baked potatoes. Imagine trying to carry a hot, baked potato in your hand. It would be difficult, even painful, to do so. Now we are getting close to the meaning of it—something that is difficult or painful to deal with.
  Another expression is not so hot. If you ask someone how she feels, she may answer, “Not so hot.” What she means is she does not feel well. Not so hot also is a way of saying that you do not really like something. You may tell a friend that the new play you saw last night is not so hot. That means you did not consider it a success.
  Ahot shot is a person, often a young person, who thinks he can do anything. At least he wants to try. He is very sure he can succeed. But often he fails. The expression was born in the military forces. A hot shot was a soldier who fired without aiming carefully.
  Hot is also a word that is often used to talk about anger.
  A person who becomes angry easily is called a hothead. An angry person’s neck often becomes red. We say he is hot under the collar. You could say that your friend is no hothead. But he got hot under the collar when someone took his radio.
  In 1963, hot line appeared as a new expression.
  The hot line was a direct communications link between the leaders of the Soviet Union (苏联) and the United States. It had an important purpose: to prevent accidental war between the two competitors during the Cold War. The American president and the Soviet leader were able to communicate directly and immediately on the hot line. This helped prevent any conflict during an international crisis.
