The Questions People Ask

People are funny, questions are funny.

Sometimes they are ice breakers, sometimes they teach the listener something new and sometimes the question pressures our next "life" move.  I've realized that most questions are actually expectations.

And they start coming at you pretty young,

What do you want to be when you grow up?
Typical answers: Police Officer. Teacher. Vet.
Truth: I don't want to grow up.

What are you going to do after high school?
Typical answers: College. Work. Army.
Truth: Moving out of my parents house and doing whatever I want.

What are your plans after college?
Typical answers: Job. Peace Corps. Buy a House. Get Married.
Truth: Having a big graduation party, and then get a job that pays $100,000 a year (so we thought).

So you bought a house, when are you going to fix it up?
Typical answers: When I get my taxes back. Going to pick away at it.
Truth: What's wrong with how it is?

Are you dating anyone?
Typical answers: Nobody serious. Yes. No.
Truth: I will say anything as long as you are not trying to set me up with someone.

Is this your boyfriend/girlfriend? When are you getting married?
Typical answers: We're taking it slow. Soon. We are just having fun.
Truth: Man's answer, does that mean we live together? Woman's answer, as soon as possible!

Your wedding reception last night was amazing! When are you having kids?
Typical answers: Honeymoon baby! We are just going to enjoy each other for a while.
Truth: Seriously, we haven't even opened our gifts yet!

Your pregnant!? Are you going to find out what you're having?
Typical answers: Yes or No
Truth: Mind your own business!

Your baby is perfect, newborns are so innocent, when are you going to try for another one?
Typical answers: 2 years. When it happens it happens.
Truth: Really! 

Defy the expectations!  But I guarantee the questions will keep coming.

Did I miss any?  Have you heard any other classics?
