The perfect response for that irksome co-worker.

Not having children opens up ones personal life to many inappropriate and prying questions, mostly from utter strangers and unbelievably nosy co-workers. I have gleaned some excellent responses to impertinent questions about our childlessness from an excellent thread about this same subject on my favorite Disney forum:

Question: Are you going to have children?


1. Alas! My womb is barren!
2. How do you make a baby? We haven't figured that out yet.
3. I was bathed in acid rain as a toddler, so I'm sterile.
4. Why? So I can share in your misery?
5. There are much better ways to contribute to humanity then simply by adding to it.
6. I like to visit elephants at the zoo, but don't want one in my living room.
7. Are you asking if I'm having sex with my husband?

And my personal favorite:

8. I do have a child! He's right h....oh my God! Where's the baby!

Personally, I like. "Well, I would, but I can't finish a whole one."

how about "only with ranch dressing."
ACTUALLY, we know alot of people who will not have kids. You are not alone. I 'm lucky my parents and Chris' parents arent obnoxious about this issue.
