Well, why not!

Why did I chuckle (and leave it at that) when my hairstylist playfully smacked me on the shoulder and said "You're so lucky you don't have kids. You really are!"?

Why did I decide to pursue a professional writing project on the topic of IVF?

Why has Celine Dion already announced a pregnancy not due to culminate until next May?*

*And, btw, is her p-stick even dry yet?

UHG! That wasn't very thoughtful of her. Although, I've come to the conclusion that most people don't EVER think before they speak.

I'm curious about your writing project. Tell more!

Oh, the hairstylist's comment didn't offend me . . . she was just telling me all about her home-life drama, having her own bad day, and she threw that in. She knows nothing about why I don't have kids, just that I don't. I was actually glad I reacted, naturally, as I did.

I'll tell more about the writing gig later if it goes somewhere. Right now it's just a project I pitched. I figured I might as well write something now, while I have a leg up on the research and still have (almost) full recall of my own experience.

Comments like that drive me absolutely batty. :p

So does Celine, for that matter. ; ) I have my own post brewing about her.

I think your hairstylist and mine sound like twins. (-; I listen and nod and mostly bite my tongue.

I hope the writing project pans out. Sounds like an promising opportunity.

And I am so over celebrity baby watch...

I'm chuckling about the pee stick comment! I look forward to the answers to all these questions, cuz all I can come up with is "hell if I know!!"

Ok, I'm still in shock about the Celine Dion thing ... I mean, I did the math ... if she "found out" on Monday (Aug. 17th) ... she was 7dpo ... not 7dpt ... 7dpo ... I DON'T THINK the pee stick was dry by then ... Sheesh!

Sorry about the hairstylist ....

Only question #3 is a complete mystery to me...but who can really know the mind of Celine Dion (or want to)?

Question #1 happens to me all the time!

As for Question #2 - interesting project, and probably much needed.
