But wait, I shouldn't have told you that, right? Because Maine is calling. Please ignore this post.
Wait a minute. I thought you were the one that said you had to have air conditioning?

I'm not opposed to A/C. Just don't tell me I can't live without it on the hook, because some people can't.

Heat and humidity are definitely something you can get used to (if that wasn't true, I would have missed out on one of the best jobs I ever had). If you couldn't I would have dropped dead working summers doing construction when in college. To me, the absolute worst thing you can do is go back and forth from air conditioning to outside heat. That's knowing that from living in a lot of hot places, including Miami.
