Dear Mrs. Crabby,
I was always taught that the most important things in the world are in this order:
1. Always be the prettiest in the room;
2. Always be the most popular in the room;
3. Always be with the most popular boy or girl in the room
I have succeeded at this all my life, Mrs. Crabby. I am older now, and still look younger than all my wrinkly, crepe necked friends. Everyone wants to be friends with me, so I had to hide my friends list on Facebook because I have groups of friends who are not friends with other groups of friends, though some are friends, but others are not, and I don’t want to start a war over myself or anything, like Helen of Troy. And I hang out only with all the best people in my various sets.
Here’s my problem. One of my friends is a friend with a person I have decided is an icky person who I also decided no one should be friends with, though I have to pretend to be friends with them or my friend (who is still really popular, otherwise I’d dump her too), will not be my friend and I might lose some status in my various sets.
This icky person is really harshing my mellow Mrs. Crabby. How do I deal with this so that I can have a smoother social set?
Dear Angel Baby,
No worries, hon. Just stop inviting this “icky friend” to anything and stop interacting with them. They will eventually figure it out and likely move as far away from you as humanly possible.
I know I would.
