Why Being an Only Child Sucks

See, before heading to a Tuscan villa with our Roman friends to drink wine in the shade of olive and lemon trees heavy with fruit (or so my imagination goes), we are taking a little cruise around the Western Mediterranean. And single occupancy on a cruise ship is just too expensive they say. I’m not sure that meeting them somewhere post-cruise, but pre-villa will work. So I’m out. But…seriously? Italy. Mediterranean. Villa. I want all that. It just seems unfair that I have to give up the family trip when I’m already down regular sex and cuddling.
