Can’t Make the Social Fresh Cruise. Want My Spot?

by Missy Ward in For The Heck of It, Social Soul   &  , ,   9 Comments

I've been on the road since the beginning of September and have successfully managed to avoid the Con Crud from multiple events and have also bypassed three family-wide sicknesses.  (I chock it up to not eating meat and my love of good wine.)

Unfortunately, while in NY this past week for The World Series, Ad-Tech and Audience Conference, I picked up the germ that would officially knock me out of commission for what the doctor says is “until such time that I deem you healthy enough to kill yourself again.”

So, I'm supposed to be going on the Social Fresh Cruise this Thursday out of Miami and there's just no way I'm going to be able to make it. On top of that, I've paid the extra up-charge to be in a cabin by myself because I don't like sharing. Period. (Those that know me well, can attest to my obsession over germs.)

I can't get a refund, but my bad news is hopefully, someone's good news.

If you would like to go in my place it will cost you only $50 bucks for a name change and you will be required to do a guest post on my blog recapping the event.

The ship is the Carnival Destiny and it's a 4-night Western Caribbean jaunt leaving out of Miami on November 12th. It's going to be an awesome event filled with lots of cool people that I'd much rather hang out with than be at home sick by myself.

If you want to go, be the first person to let me know by commenting on this blog and I will put you in touch with the folks at Social Fresh to make the change.

It's important to note that YOU WILL NEED A PASSPORT.

So, if you don't have a passport; can't get yourself to/from Miami; can't pay the $50 change fee or won't do the guest post recapping the event, please don't say you can make it. (I'm sick, tired and cranky and the last thing I want is to mess around, especially when I'm trying to be nice.) 😉

So… wanna go?

Oh honey!! I so wish you weren't having to cancel!! Was looking forward to seeing you in Miami tomorrow!!____But you know what? I *totally* get the "too sick to social" thing… I overdid it all the way up through BWE then collapsed for a weekend.____I'm fairly sure this will be the first of many such events – besides, I'm trying to get my butt down to ASW this year… ____So take care of you, feel better, and for heaven's sake rest!!! (((hug)))

I was really looking forward to the cruise, too! Unfortunately, similar to two years ago in the last quarter, I caught pneumonia. I'm down for the count and on bed rest for at least two weeks minimum.

Let me know if you decide to come to Vegas. I've got a F&F Pass with your name on it!

Have a great time on the cruise.
