That question, that one question that I don’t like. I don’t want to answer it, as it certainly is followed by another question that I don’t want to answer.
“Do you have children?”
No, we do not have children. We don’t want children. I don’t like children. If I give this answer the previous question will be followed by:
“Or are you having problems getting pregnant?”
I haven’t got a clue. Never tried it. Why would I try to get pregnant if I don’t want kids? People seem to think that if a woman says she doesn’t want kids, there’s got to be something wrong. Either with her or her husband. It seems not possible that there are women who simply don’t want kids, don’t like kids. It’s impossible…
One time I answered the first question with a ‘funny’ answer. I told the woman who asked: “Yes, we have 4 kids. 2 cats and 2 cars.” She didn’t think it was funny. She didn’t speak to me for ages…
