So what's your sore spot?

It's nothing compared to your loss, but when people ask me when we're going to *give* Alexandra a brother or sister, or however they phrase it, I still haven't found a short and snappy way of explaining "we tried to for years, it didn't happen, I was devastated for awhile but now I'm over it, and by the way she's just fine thanks" without divulging far more information than they deserve(/are interested in), while at the same time letting them know that it was a pretty dumb and insensitive question to ask, and that not everyone gets to choose the exact number of children that they want.
On the flip side though I'm sure that through the years I've asked equally dumb and insensitive question unthinkingly without any insight into what might have brought the person to whatever situation I'm asking about, and then felt like a jerk when they give the answer I never expected to hear.
but those are all totally valid questions!
Liza hasn't worn underwear under her tights for four years -- she never wears underwear to class.
