Q: My husband and I have happily chosen to be child-fee; however, when I meet new people, they invariably ask, "Are you considering adoption?" or "Are your pipes broken?" Please help me formulate a response.
A: Tell the half-wits: "I adore children!" And when they reply, "Then why don't you have a kid?" say, " I also adore a penis; it doesn't mean I want one."
