    Cool cooling high heels

    Is there some cryptic meaning in the following sentence:

    "Melba was cooling her high heels in a prison cell..."

    Or does it simply mean Melba is passing the time in jail rather bored?

    Thanks

    There is no cryptic meaning.

    OK, but then, do you mean my "passing the time rather bored" suggestion is right?

    Thank you

    Yes, that probably explains it quite well.
