Only Child No More

Whenever there were ice breakers during college and we had to state an ‘interesting fact’ about ourselves (‘interesting fact’ in quotations, because let’s be honest, the facts were never that interesting) I would say that I was an only child.  The reason I was made to believe that this fact held any interest at all [...]
