Dear Shmitten Kitten,
Is Mercury in retrograde or something? It seems like everyone I know is going through some intense drama all of a sudden. Couples are breaking up, friends are losing their jobs left and right; everyone just seems on edge. What's the deal?

Dear Sprung by Spring,
Man, we hear ya! March came through like a wrecking ball. As the temperature rises, the nuttiness turns up to 11. It's like those old skool Bonkers commercials where a huge fruit-shaped object crashes through your roof and lands on your sofa except instead of a giant strawberry mucking up the flow, it's people bumming out our loved ones.
Our advice: roll with it. Spring fever is hitting hard so do some crazy stuff yourself. As long as you don't throw a drink or a punch, you're good. Switch it up a bit. Get a haircut. Hang out in new places. Make new friends. Flirt with the hot guy you always see at the cafe who totally has a girlfriend. Toss out some negs to the cute guy at the Mac store. Make it count! Besides, come summer barbecue time, you'll be relaxing poolside with buddies, margs and (veggie) burgers. There's a light at the end of the tunnel and it's called Memorial Day Weekend.
