Yesterday I went to lunch with my dad and his friend Raul at the local burrito place.  My parents' neighbor has worked there since the place opened.  When she saw me she came over to say hello.  We hugged, and then she grabbed at my stomach and said something like "Where's the baby?"!!!!!   I said "No babies" and amazingly didn't get angry.

Granted I've put on a few pounds and was wearing a kangaroo hoodie, but I still can't figure out what possessed her to paw at me. I was shocked, but not too much.  A lot of people seem to think that the whole point of life is having kids, but you know I disagree.  Just because you can have kids doesn't mean you should.

First off, no one should be grabbing anyone else's body that way. Even if you were pregnant, people shouldn't grab your tummy. You're far more understanding than I am. I would have been severely pissed at her.

Secondly, you know I'm with you on the no-kids thing. Not everyone wants to have kids. What is so hard to understand about that?
