Balin, you got that stupid song stuck in my head (I'm a teenage girl, too. I can taste the irony). CURSE YOU BALIN THE LTPF-ER!
The girl: HCF? HTF? HAF? Age relevant? If so: 0-5? 6-10? 11-15? 16-20? 21-25? 26-30? 31 or older?
I=you, Balin=HAM?
That=some sort of action? If so, one the girl did? One that you did?
Does this puzzle have anything to do with the song "Call Me Maybe" sung by Carly Rae Jepsen?
I had to look up her name.

The girl = someone you know? If so, a relative? friend? classmate? someone from church?

Did you say it to her in person?

Other people involved?

Balin has gotten songs stuck in my head before, but since I haven't been exposed to this song yet, it hasn't happened to me this time. *smug smile*

*blinks eyes incredulously* Seriously? I didn't know it was possible to live in today's society and not hear that song at some point! Count yourself lucky.... I don't listen to it of my own volition, a friend of mine enjoys playing it when cleaning her room.

I=you, Balin=HAM? Yes
That=some sort of action? Yope If so, one the girl did? Yes One that you did? No
Does this puzzle have anything to do with the song "Call Me Maybe" sung by Carly Rae Jepsen? No

Did you say it to her in person? Yes

Hmmm... could we have a recap and/or hint? I feel lost. Sure. Not much has actually been figured out yet.

RECAP with a slight HINT:

Amy, Beth, and I were all inside. Amy was in a relevant location, undetermined. Amy's phone is relevant, but any calls/texts/etc are not.

Did you find it? Did Beth?

This is taking place at school, right? Did she left it at a location within the school? If so, a classroom? cafeteria? library? hallway? bathroom [if it's that, I assume it wasn't you who found it!]?

So she left it in the men's bathroom? Did she actually go in there? Did she give it to someone else who went in there? or did it somehow slide/fall/otherwise wind up in there without a person moving it?

****SPOILER****

Before a choir concert, I went to use the bathroom in the (empty-at-the-time) music building, only to be stopped by one girl who informed me that her (female) friend was in there, as they couldn't find the women's room. After the girl left the room and started walking away, I went into the bathroom and found her phone on the floor. I quickly hurried out, got their attention, and gave the phone back, informing her that it could have been embarrassing (it was obviously a girl's phone, as it had a glittery light blue case).

Nice work everyone, and nice solve Biograd. New puzzle coming up.
