Commuting sucks, I know. BUT at least our trains are running. South Shore is closed down today.

Oh, don't get me wrong. I love my very easy commute and that the CTA runs mostly fine.

But lately I've had some very stinky rides. Just could have done without it on this fine Monday morning.

I'd love for you to get a bottle of Frebreeze (sp?), spray it around on the CTA and say your doing a commercial. Film it with your phone. Spray the seats, people's butts, armpits... Bet it would go viral on Youtube.

1. Not Chicago
2. A cruise, try the Mediterranean
3. Cabo San Luca
4. Not New Orleans, especially not next week
5. Paradise Island, Atlantis resort
6. Do the still have Club Med? I went to Martinique for my divorce vacation at a Club Med, and had a very good time, but that was in 1978 and I am very much aware things have changed.
7. Maybe NYC and do very un-FL things
8. Spain, especially the south coast
(I am right behind you)
Do un-FL things?
Mediteranean, Cabo San Lucas, Paradise Island? Wouldn't any kind of beach places constitute Florida things? Or was that only meant for the NY suggestion? In which case I'd be curious as to what Florida type things you had in mind to avoid.

I'll second the Paradise Island suggestion. Its been over 10 years since I've been and just recently started tossing around the idea of going back within the next couple years. I loved that place.

Unfortunately, I'd have to be spraying actual people. And no matter how much I'd like to, that would be really uncool.

This time there was no person, just residual funk.

Un FL was limited to NYC.

Well, that would certainly explain my disagreement with their ruling.

He might have half a bottle with a cork stuck backward in the bottle to keep it good.

That's why it would go viral on Youtube. I was just imaging something that I know most people on here would never do. It would be funny as all hell, though.
