Hurt feelings

Dear Queenie,

  My best friend got a cell phone for her 15th birthday and now she never talks to me anymore, she is always on the phone.

  Queenie, why is she treating me like this?—Hurt feelings

Dear Hurt feelings,

  Like most teenagers, your friend is fascinated with something new. Ask her to show you how her phone works and hope that when you get one of your own you will become phone-bffs.

  Meanwhile, try to make some new friends, preferably ones who also do not have phones of their own.
