On Saturday, we had a conversation with a guy who showed up for the day. After the conversation the previous night I was pretty pooped and didn't feel like talking adoption again. When this guy asked if we had kids yet, I let S give the standard, "No, not yet" answer and prayed that the conversation ended there. Mr. Nosy continued "So, any talk of kids, do you want kids?" I practically jumped out of my chair yelling Who the fuck do you think you are?. Yeah, not really, but I snapped a little and said we were adopting and then had to go through the standard question/answer session. And I sooo did not feel up to it.
Two totally different encounters over the course of two days. What's interesting is that I was ready to talk on Friday so there wasn't the chance to dodge once someone asked us if we were going to have kids. But when I don't feel like educating (and face it, that's what you have to do every time you tell someone new) I really want them to drop the subject if we say "no kids yet."
