I had a conversation the other day when I met someone new for the first time. The typical small talk. Weather. Where I’m from. How long I’ve lived in Bloomington. If I have a family…
Them: “Do you have a family?”
Me: “Yes, I got married in June!”
Them: “Oh! And you already have a baby? How fun!”
Me:”Haha, no, no baby.”
Them: “Oh so you don’t have a family…?”
Me: “My husband is my family.”
Them: (puzzled) Oh.
Yes, my husband is my family. No, children are not in our immediate future.
