On October 3rd, he asked me what day it was.
It’s October 3rd.”
Happy National Mean Girls Day, ladies. Let the celebrations begin.
With its release in 2004, Mean Girls became a phenomenon sweeping up the tweenagers of the world and became a staple in every girl’s upbringing. Today, on October 3rd, we commemorate the glorious one-liners and cherished figures that the film permanently established in our lives.
Forget Gossip Girl. Mean Girls encompasses the entire development of the collegiette from middle school to college. It contains all the essential lessons that we need to remember in our daily lives.
Unsure how to deal with that persistent and annoying bottom-feeder who won’t stop putting down their things at your table on New Side in Peirce? Simply scream, “You can’t sit with us!” Surprising your friends with a spontaneous trip to Easton? “Get in loser, we’re going shopping.”
Cady Heron showed us the importance of accountability and acceptance. Regina George illustrated the destructive power of gossip. Karen Smith taught us how to determine the weather. Gretchen Weiners taught us the importance of a girl’s freedom to wear hoop earrings.
Today’s the day where we honor Janis Ian, Damian (mysteriously-lacking-a-last-name), Kevin Gnapoor, the Burn Book, the Plastics and all the other characters of Mean Girls that fundamentally altered our future and affected our present.
It’s Wednesday. Let’s wear pink. p.s. THIS
