It's funny how innocuously the research of various peppers entered my mind today. I was waking up from a brief slumber, wondering how my brother's first days at home with his new daughter were going. I imagined the exchanges in the kitchen, coffee brewing, heirloom china containing sugar, and last but not least, a spice rack by the stove, out from which came cayenne pepper. Is the word, cayenne, a proper noun or a common noun? It's an adjective I see now, and much like the Moh's harness scale, the cayenne pepper is rated 3 out of 5 in hotness.
