What are you waiting for?

I’m at an age where the question of my single-hood and childlessness continually comes up. Apparently it’s a deep seeded concern of not only extended family but also relative strangers! My grandmother recently asked me, “What are you waiting for?” and a client asked me with such concern, “Don’t you want to get married?”
Luckily I’m not the only one faced with these questions, in her new book I can barely take care of  myself, stand-up comedian Jen Kirkman writes about herself and the trials and tribulations of being an unmarried and childless women. You may recognize Jen Kirkman from her role as a narrator in the popular “Drunk History” series from Funny or Die/HBO. If you don’t know who Kirkman is already, she’s a writer for the Chelsea Lately show and is featured on After Lately as well as the Pod F. Tompkast.
Her book is hilarious as Kirkman recounts tales of starting out as a stand up comic and her early realization that maybe a full life doesn’t have to include procreation. This book isn’t an anti-child tome but a humourous tale of self-reflection and living by your own terms.  If you’re lucky you can catch Kirkman touring to support her book which is available not only in print but in eBook and audio-book form. This book is the perfect gift to give all those intrusive family members and friends who think that you’ll spend the rest of your life in a house full of cats. Lucky for me I’m allergic.
