これって英語で何て言う?

偶数週は、東京在住の日米夫婦・健一とレイチェルが主人公。「これ英語で何て言うのかな?」を考えます

「暑さが苦手である」 don't do well in the heat

(Rachel and Kenichi are talking at home)

Rachel: I wish I could have a lifestyle where we could spend summers someplace where it's not so hot and humid and miserable.

Kenichi: You tell me that every year.

Rachel: When are we going to be able to buy a home somewhere dry and cool and stay there during summer, and either work from there or not work at all?

Kenichi: I tell you every year: probably never.

Rachel: (Sighing jokingly) Thanks for ruining my day.

Kenichi: (Jokingly) You're welcome.

Rachel: Remind me why we're going to the fireworks? I thought I'd declared years ago that I never wanted to go see fireworks amid a mob of people in the heat and humidity while getting eaten up by mosquitoes just so we could watch a half-hour show, and then take forever to get home because the train stations are packed?

Kenichi: (Looking at Rachel incredulously) Your college friend is visiting with her husband, and they wanted to go.

Rachel: Right. Thanks for coming with me, Ken. And for putting up with my foul mood. I just don't do well in the heat. I spent most of my childhood summers in muggy Florida, but I never grew to tolerate the weather there, either.
