It’s None Of Your Business.

I’ve heard of this happening to other women, but I’ve only just had it start happening to me: strangers asking me when I’m going to have another child.

Even more, I’ve had several people tell me, after I’ve answered that I’m not sure if/when we’ll have another, that I had better “get crackin’.” To which I say… nothing. Because I’m trying to be less hostile in real life.

What I would like to say is this:

  1. Fuck you.
  2. Why do you care?
  3. What, am I expiring or something? Do I go bad in 6 months? Damn- I sure wish somebody had thought to read my label! I never knew I had to be refrigerated after opening!
  4. Maybe I’ve been “crackin’.” Did you think of that? Maybe I have serious fertility problems. Maybe I’ve been having miscarriages. Maybe having you tell me to “get crackin’” will make me go home and cry for hours. Did you think of that? Wait… Did you think AT ALL?
  5. And when did 28 become OLD?!
  6. Who’s schedule are we on, anyway? And why didn’t I get a copy? Is there a gantt chart?
  7. Really, it’s none of your business.
  8. Why do you care?
  9. Fuck you.

So much for reducing my hostility.
