How did you know?

Actually this is what I get...

"Dingus THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL! Are you SURE they are yours? REALLY???????!!!!!!1111111"

Should I be insulted?

Advice? On social mores, from ME???

Ahem.

I guess on the one hand I understand your quest for privacy.

But on the other hand I guess I really don't see the harm nor do I understand, truly understand, why you take offence over innocent questions like that.

Oh intellectually I do get it - but emotionally I do not.

Example: I asked my brother's wife if they were going to have another kid. No answer and my mom blanched and later told me she CAN'T HAVE any more kids.

Now I guess I'm supposed to be embarrassed? WEll I'm not. She didn't tell me and I'll be damned if I am going to allow myself to feel shame to compensate for her restricted emotions over an innocent q.

Now I won't go asking her again mind you. But I don't get the whole 'upset' behind innocent questions. And clearly a lot of people don't get step children (at least you have legal standing my dear...).

The preacher man was very surprised when my brown skinned NOT daughter introduced me as My Papa. I let him revel in his curiousity and confusion - I could see it on his brow and I enjoyed in letting it simmer hehe.

Yikes! I just posted this as Josh a few minutes ago! He's an iPhone stealer!

I'm sure your sister-in-law understands & appreciates you only asking her once. For some reason I get asked by the same people numerous times. No means no! But I'm certainly not mean to someone who asks.

You can't really control or predict what people are going to ask you. But you can nicely inform them of where your boundaries are.

My reaction probably has a lot to do with my parents wanting me to get married & have kids right out of high school rather than going to school & getting a career. I'm such a disappointment!

You've never once disappointed me... and you're a MODERATOR (the horror... the horror...)!

No I don't think my sister in law appreciates the least little thing about me hehe.

Just tell em happily - 'what with the genital warts, hepatitis shots and tractor seats I don;t have TIME to have more children!'

I bet they won't ask again after THAT!

Perhaps if your parents had brought you climbing as a kid, you could avoid them now by sending something a little harder than a "sick 5.9 route".


I don't have kids, but I am all for seeing them at the crag, as long as they are properly supervised.

I thought that too, but it doesn't work. And your kids come out strange...

Oh, my friend, you cheese-titted the shit out of that quote. Them's Nilcarborundum's words. Also, I'm pretty sure his kids will come out strange no matter what. [whispers]he lives in idaho.[/whispers]
