Rude, but Funny.

Oh yeah with all that ranting and raving I forgot the one thing that brought a wry smile to my face-it came in the mailbox as usual...

It was a letter.

From my health fund. Asking me to consider upgrading my insurance policy to include pregnancy and childbirth services...yeah right!!! I hardly think it possible when there is nobody I'd even want to touch with a 10foot bargepole in this city :p

In any case I thought, unsolicited, it made for a a pretty rude mail offering...but I guess their computer automatically generates these "cordial invitations" once a female hits a certain age...

geez, if I think about it, it's pretty offensive!!!

Shan, I'd like to hear what your reaction would have been...

p.s I think I definitely live up to the title "Grandma" cos I still can't bring myself to buy a pair of shorts to wear under my arty dress cos they are all SO SHORT! lol, the irony.

HO, I think if it happens, I would time it so that your kids will be big enough to baby-sit mine ;)

btw you know an interesting trend here- the seriously type A single women getting donors and going through multiple IVF cycles with TCM as support...

I don't like it, it's so unnatural. But it's legal. In any case if they'd stop stressing out and being so demanding and impatient their body might actually be able to support the embryo to term! I think people in modern society forget a baby is a blessing rather than a commodity and right for everybody...well that's my opinion anyway...

OK - I'll send my kids over to babysit if/when..

I don't know why anyone would volunteer to be a single parent. I would die. ;)
seriously.

You could be right about the being patient thing, though.. I was able to get pregnant RIGHT after I stopped worrying about it. ('course that took antidepressants.. but who cares. your 'patience' argument still holds water).

Do you want the super gross answer that immediately popped into my head, or the less offensive answer that doesn't involve used feminine hygiene products?

You're terrible, Shannon :P
