I just realized that I promised to tell you the story of the African fertility statue.
My colleague, JB, is younger than me, with two daughters. The other day this statue was on his desk.
It's from Africa and clearly shows a woman with a huge head, earrings, outstretched arms, a necklace, breasts and then an abstract design for her hoo-ha (I think).
He explained that it was given to him when he had his wife were trying to conceive their first child, and it had helped him with their second child, too. He'd given it to a friend (who had a daughter) who was only returning it now.
I just stood there, holding the statue in my hands when he said, "Better be careful, this is pretty strong juju!"
I pretended to be startled, and laughed and set it down (reluctantly). Oh, how I wanted to tell him that it must have already worked on me!
Question: Have you been give or do you have any fertility statues, totems, or other symbols to help you conceive?
