Dear Miss Fortune Cookie,
My best friend stole my boyfriend. Now she’s going to prom with him. Is it wrong to give her mono by drinking from her soda can at lunch?
Can you really give someone mono that way? I wish they taught us useful things like that in bio. Seriously though …
Confucius said: Before embarking on a path of revenge, first dig two graves. Are you still friends with her? If so, tell her how you feel. If you are no longer friends, revenge won’t make anything better.
