Oh, by the way, at my last private session with those two women, we were chatting and somehow got on the topic of kids. I said I’ve never been interested in having any. One lady said “You might change your mind…” I said I really didn’t think so. And so she was like “How old are you?” and I told her I was forty-one and that killed the line of questioning dead. Dead.
Even as far back as my mid-thirties, people would have The Kids Conversation with me and the revelation of my age would make them stammer to a halt. But now it works even better. Ha!
