What does CAC stand for?

Cool as a cucumber

When you’re totally chilled out even in stressful situations, you’re “CAC”. This is short for “cool as a cucumber”. This interesting phrase comes from the idea that a cucumber’s inside is cooler than the surrounding air.

You could be called CAC in a variety of scenarios. Maybe you smoothly handled a heated argument at your workplace, or stayed calm in a threatening situation. In these cases, you’re definitely CAC.

It’s not just about danger or conflict, though. People also use CAC to talk about those who stay calm under pressure in competitions. For instance, a basketball player scoring the winning basket in a crucial game or a video game player keeping their cool in a high-stakes online battle.
