Predicament of the Week
In which Breakup Girl addresses the situation that has, this week, brought her the most (a) amusement, (b) relief that it is happening to someone else, and/or (c) proof that she could not possibly be making this stuff up.

Dear Breakup Girl,

I have a crush on this really cute guy named Jake, but his mom is my teacher in school and also my best friend.

How do I tell her I have a crush on her son? How should I tell Jake? Please help as soon as possible.

-- BritneyLover

Dear BritneyLover,

Ooh, you are so lucky!

You have:

1. a crush

2. a teacher you really look up to

3. already "met the parents."

See? You're actually in excellent shape. In fact, I'm not sure you really need to tell MomTeacher anything, unless you wind up needing her to drive you guys somewhere. Plus I could just hear Jake being all, "You told my mom first?!"

So if I were you, I'd just ask Jake, like, out. (Click here for instructions.) Being a teacher and all, bet Mrs. Jake will figure it out. And if she's your best friend, then she's probably pretty fond of you, too. And would probably be pleased to hear that you -- as opposed to, say, your evil arch rival (ChristinaLover?) -- have designs on her son. (All of that said, a date with Jake should not count toward your grade.)
