President Obama pardoned a turkey. Look at the picture. Can you just see the joy on that turkey's face? See his big smile? Okay, so turkeys don't really smile, but this one probably wishes it could.
Pardoning a turkey has been an annual White House tradition since 1989. The chosen turkey escapes being eaten at Thanksgiving and goes someplace really nice. In past years, the turkey has been flown to Disneyland in California where it serves as a grand marshal for Disneyland's Thanksgiving Day parade. After that, the turkey will spend the rest of its life at a Disneyland ranch. A spot in sunny Disneyland seems a whole lot better than being eaten, doesn't it?
Have you ever felt angry at someone? Sometimes, when friends are mean or someone hurts us or disappoints us, we feel we’re the only ones who have ever been hurt that way. But that’s not true at all. Since the beginning of time, people have been doing mean things to each other.
A perfect example of this is the story of Jacob and Esau. They were twin brothers, but they weren’t very nice to each other. Jacob tricked Esau out of something that was very special to Esau—his blessing. It was probably the most important thing Esau had.
Esau was angry when he learned Jacob had stolen his blessing. He wanted to kill Jacob!
"Justin is sooooo cute."
"Is Trevor looking this way? I think he likes me."
"If I text Micah, do you think he’ll text back?"

Or maybe this sounds like you!
Seems like someone’s been bitten by the boy bug. Don’t worry, it’s not fatal or contagious, but it can create a lot of unnecessary drama.
So if your BFF is the boy crazy one, what can you do to keep from losing her?
