DEAR ABBY: I am, once again, faced with my annual dilemma. I cannot tolerate heat and humidity. I become short of breath, my heart pounds and I perspire profusely. I recover immediately if I go into an air-conditioned area. I have discussed this with doctors. They attribute it to my "thermostat" and the fact that I am a very fair-skinned redhead. My mother had the same problem.

Q. I recently had three interviews for the same job. While I did not get the job, I did have three good interviews, each beginning with the vice president of human resources. It seemed important to wear something different each time, and that wasn't easy. I have two very good suits that I look good in, and a few nice blazers (the basic of my industry, if one dresses up at all). Was it acceptable to go with a blazer for the third interview, or was I better served returning to the first suit?
