This one always gets me, what do people really expect you to say to that?

"Golly gee no, I'm 38 years old and infertile...what is this "adoption" concept that you speak of?"



The whole topic of having children is one of the reasons I HATE "small talk" - it seems an obligatory question that people just can't seem to let go of...like I want to share my struggles and decisions over one of the most important decisions a person can make in their lives with a relative stranger. ...(actually our families are not at all nosy and would never pest us about kids, it's the random social encounters that piss me off)

The kernel of evil inside me wants to say "No, I don't have kids...your God thinks I'm a bad person and struck me barren." OR, even better, "No, I'm allergic to crotch-fruit."
