What do a 19 year old couple and the sleezy guy in the pub last night have in common? They are both complete strangers who have recently told me that I "should have children".
Whilst it it very flattering that these people who have only spoken to me for a few minutes have been so quick to notice my clearly outstanding genes, and no doubt feel that for the good of mankind I have to reproduce, it does leave me floored as to how to respond.
I normally say something quite lame and non-committal like "yeah we probably will have kids someday", blatently lie "Kids?! God, I'm not ready for them yet", or try (not very successfully) to be humorous "Oooh no! You have to have sex for that, yuk".
I'm sure you guys can do better. I want witty retorts that will not invite more questions, and not let them know that we have been trying for a year and a half without success. Any ideas?
