Bring It On, in Miniature

The TSA has finally and thankfully relaxed its rules regarding liquids and gels brought aboard aircraft. Passengers can now bring miniature bottles of gels and liquids as long as they are fully declared at security checkpoints and stored in see-through, ziploc plastic bags. Many airport stores are selling the plastic baggies, and in one instance donating the profits to local charities. Passengers are also once again able to bring aboard liquor and perfumes purchased at duty-free shops. To avoid hassles, I recommend storing as many items as possible in one's checked luggage. But if you must carry-on your medicine cabinet, at least now you won't be turned away--so long as you keep it small!

So I guess that means I can bring 2 litres of Aristocrat Vodka in Le Bleu water bottles on the plane, like the two of us did back in June of 2001, when we were were under 21, right? Those were good times....

Yep, just be prepared to take a sip, without wincing, in case they should ask. Perhaps my acid reflux problems can be traced back to the tom collins we made with that vodka--not to mention the fried seafood meals. Ugh.
