Yes, coffee

first and foremost, americans need to hold a large plastic cup in one hand, containing hot or iced coffee (for the latter you need a lot of milk, sugar, some drops of pure coffee and mostly ice-cubes). no matter what they do (sure, there are exceptions; not ALL americans walk around with a coffee, but you get the point..), how hot or cold it is, whether you are in an overcrowded subway-train, or carrying a suitcase or your three children... one of the hands is reserved for the coffee... no clue how they manage it. im always afraid they will spill it over me when someone is holding a large cup above my head when i was fortunate to get a seat but they didnt....
ah, and yes, also during a snowstorm in the boston common public garden (!!) there will be iced-coffee... as above... im just wondering what the other hand is doing with the camera... :)

Must be difficult to take a picture like that. I wonder why everybody is walking with the coffee. I never manage to drink while walking, I have to sit and enjoy my drink. There is still a lot of snow in Boston!

i think many americans really get trained form very young age onwards.. somehow everything is possible with a cup of coffee in one hand. are they more evolved.... :D?
