Why, Oh Why, Didn't I Have Kids?

Why don't I have kids?  Because I never really wanted 'em.  They're not for everybody, something I tried to explain to a woman I met recently.  She looked at me like I was speaking a foreign language that she didn't understand.  And I guess I kind of was, because she has four kids and couldn't seem to shut up about them.  And, actually, she was more than just "a woman", she was a client so I felt it important that I be clear but oh so polite.  I would like her to hire me again…even though she probably thinks of me as 'that strange woman with no kids'....more

Now I know better. That expression has nothing to do with being annoyed at someone younger than you are, it's all about having learned that we don't really really know what life is all about until we've lived awhile....more

A 1970s teenager- My 1976 diary

I will be mentioning Rhett again in this entry. I should perhaps tell you that I was extremely put out when my best friend Caroline started going out with him. Being very mature for my age, I dealt with this by sending her to Coventry (i.e. giving her the silent treatment). She withstood this onslaught very well....more
