I always wondered why southern things…from southern belles to southern peaches…always seemed so lush and ripe and on the endge. Now I know why. Because you have a choice in this humidity. You can be ripe or you can be one huge lump of mold and mildew. I think Charleston is beautiful but please lord, get me back to the zero humidity of Alaska. I don’t care what that does to my skin and hair. At least I’ll feel like I can breathe again. Who the hell ever settled here before air conditioning. Were they crazy?
