All parents lie to their kids once in a while. Sometimes we do it without even thinking. It's literally built into our holiday traditions! Figures like Santa, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, Cupid, Leprechauns... all lies. They're adorable, acceptable lies, but they're still fundamentally outright lying to your children. So some people are a bit shocked that Kristen Bell openly admitting that she sometimes lies to her young daughters has got people so angry.


Let's provide a little context. Kristen's daughters are three and five, not exactly ages that are notorious for being patient or understanding. During an appearance on Today, she explained that she just doesn't tell her daughters when it's their birthday if it falls on a day of the week that they can't have a party. They're impatient and kids don't have a great grasp of the calendar anyway, so:

"If it's, like, a Wednesday and we can't celebrate and we're both working late then, guess what, your birthday is on Saturday."

She's not out here skipping their birthdays or lying to them and telling them they were born at a completely different time. She's just trying to keep the peace and help things run smoothly until she thinks her kids are old enough to understand that you don't always have to have a party ON your birthday.

Quite a few people on Facebook were upset about the lying.

Don't disturb my beauty sleep! That's the one rule I have––and thankfully I live alone, so there isn't anyone to bother me, which is fabulous. But that doesn't mean I'm immune to getting woken up in the middle of the night. The worst way I can think of off the top of my head? The time a drunk guy wandered into my friend's yard and started banging on the window while I was trying to sleep. It was 3 a.m. The incident also gave me the fright of my life!

People told us about the experiences that yanked them out of dreamland after Redditor GratefulD_86 asked the online community,

I love food! Maybe a little too much. It's been an especially amorous relationship over this pandemic. And I know I'm not alone.

All of our palettes are tuned to our own personal tastes. And sometimes certain items and combinations of tastes can leave others less than enticed.

I've lost track of all the side-eye I've gotten when I declare how much I enjoy PINEAPPLE on pizza. I said it. I meant it. Fight me. Let's discuss who else has eclectic tastes.

Redditor u/CatVideoFest wanted to discuss the mixing of certain ingredients that don't leave the best taste in one's mouth by asking:
