Comments: NUTJOBS ON A BOAT? SIGN ME UP

The family and I took a cruise along Greece and Italy after I got back from Iraq the first time.

There was a ship allowing servicemembers coming back from Iraq to book for half-price, and about 75% of those onboard were military families. I almost took it. But then I realized at that time the last thing I wanted to do was be on a ship full of guys with military haircuts who would be talking on and on about Iraq! (guys can't help it, me included).
So I booked us on a ship full of Italians instead, and had the time of my life. Hardly anyone spoke English, and that's just the way I wanted it. The upper decks were full of topless sunbathers. A true getaway from the normal grind.
