Boston, Boston: Trips and Tricks

Tips and Tricks:

1. When working with a Realtor, tell her you want to look at apartments that rent for at least $500 less than you actually want to spend.  Then, maybe, you'll find something that's actually in your price range.

2.  If you want a milkshake, tell them you want a frappe.  Because that's what they call milkshakes here.  And your derision of that colloquialism won't turn chocolate milk into a milkshake, no matter how much you shake your head.

3.  The weather is mercurial in a way you might not think possible.  Be aware of that.  Super hot and humid, SUPER, and then brisk and windy.  Then rain.  And thunder.  Be aware.

Heads Up:

If you go on vacation, and then move right afterward, be aware that you will only have what you have in your suitcase.  This means you will have approximately 4 clothing combinations.  And Edie will have one sweater.  And one pair of pants.  Good luck with that rain.
