How bad would it be...

if I replied to "when are you graduating" with  "When are you planning to have a baby? Haven't you been married a while?".

Just wondering.

It is very tempting.

Risky business:

1. You might end up finding more about people's sex lives and medical histories than you really want to know.

2. If you're an unmarried Indian woman(and I don't know if you are), you want to be really careful about mentioning the word 'married' among other Indian people. It gives them ideas.

Well...I am tempted to ask that question in response to, "when are you getting married!" :D I have had to resort to it a few times just because some people got on my nerves bad enough for me to stoop to those levels!

Doesn't hurt! ;) Ask away! :))

Try it sometime :)) might be fun. A cousin would always say "you guys have grown so old" when they would tell her "OMG can't believe how much you have grown".

You might get the same super answer "kya tum meri mommy ho?"

I have actually tried all of this -
When are you getting married.. Oh wait shouldn't you be searching for a guy than asking me this?
When are you having a baby - shouldn't you be thinkning about this?
When are you going to publish .. should you not be working?
When are you going to leave me alone.. doesn't the blunt object (pipette)threaten you?
Sadly - they just re-route the question back at you. So the pleasure is momentary and what ensues makes you wanna stab yourself with the said blunt object :)
But keep trying.
