However, it would be nice if I could get as excited about anything in life - anything at all - as Reese does about blowing bubbles. Or sitting in a wading pool in the backyard. Or getting a taste of apple juice that hasn't been cut with water to reduce the sugar content.

Childhood choices affect whole lives

To this conclusion I have come: the most deadly years of our lives are the ages of 16 to 21. Those years give us a headiness that comes from new freedom - a driver's license - and the passing of the torch from strict childhood rules to more trust, different restraints and relaxed curfews.

The three scariest words in English

What are the three scariest words of the English language? On a serious note, it could be, "You have…(fill in the blank)." The "blank" could most likely be the scariest word of all.
