“My parents raised me never to ask people about their reproductive plans. ‘You don’t know their situation,’ my mom would say. I considered it such an impolite question that for years I didn’t even ask myself. Thirty-five turned into forty faster than McDonald’s food turns into cold non-food.”

“Confessions of a Juggler,” The New Yorker, February 14 & 21, 2011, 65.
