Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - Why Turning 30 Doesn't Have To Suck

Turning 30 Doesn't Have To Suck

Let’s be honest, as far as birthdays are concerned, after 21, it’s all downhill.

I don’t mean to be so cynical about it, but it’s true. I mean, I have literally never in my life heard someone exclaim with joy, “Guess what guys, I turn 30 next week. I am SO excited!” have you? I didn’t think so. So yeah, that’s where I am in life, turning 30, the big 3-OH, or dirty 30, whatever they are calling it these days. READ MORE

    White Lies, Bluffs, and One Direction

    Remember the day when your kids were little and you could throw out little bluffs to them? You know the ones… “you keep your room clean for 2 weeks and you can get that puppy” or “if you don’t hit your brother the entire day, you can have 2 desserts”. You know they’ll never hit the mark, so it’s a pretty safe bet, right?

    You know it’s not right (especially while you’re teaching them not to tell stories) but we’ve all done it. The problem with this scenario is that kids get older and wiser at some point – they’re not going to only call your bluff but show that their hand is a full house when all you have is dead man walking.
