Fecund \FEE-kuhnd; FEK-uhnd\, adjective:

Now that the kids are out of school and we travel en masse, I get some strange looks and odd inquiries. Here's a list of fecund related questions I get from strangers on a weekly basis followed by my mind's retaliation:
5. Are those kids all yours?
Whoa! No ma'am, I dint see that last yung'n. Whooose d'ya spose that is?
4. How do you do it?
Do? Do what? Life? What are my alternatives? I do it crazily, hectically, lovingly, grumpily, beautifully, gratefully, sometimes heavily medicated but otherwise joyfully. How would you do it?
3. You know how that happens, don't you?
Dagnabit, if I could just figger how this keeps happnin' I might be able to stop it, like a leaky faucet, just plug it right up.
2. Are they from the same father?
Do I look like I have separate litters?
And the top most ridiculously asked question...
1. Are you done yet?
Done? Done what? The answer to #3? What's it to you? Do you really want to know the answer?
