It feels like only yesterday that we looked into Aaron Samuels’ dreamy eyes for the first time.
October 3rd was the fateful day that Cady Heron beheld the beauty of Samuels, setting her off on a journey of hard-earned coming-of-age lessons that can only be imparted in the halls of high school.
Since the deliciously mean movie hit theaters in 2004, fans have paid homage to "Mean Girls" on October 3 every year.
To celebrate the film that showed us just how mean this world can be here are 11 ways to guarantee you have a fetch "Mean Girls" Day on the 16th anniversary!
1 Eat cheese fries
Whatever you do, don't go to Taco Bell and ruin your all-carb diet.
2 Become a champion Mathlete
Don't dumb down your math quiz answers just to impress the dreamboat sitting in front of you. If you put in the work, you could earn extra credit when you realize that the limit does not exist.
3 Create a Burn Book
This one might sound too unsavory and negative at first. But as "Mean Girls" showed us, a burn book can be a place of catharsis and camaraderie. Just don't piss off the people you're writing it with and get implicated when they show it to everyone you talked about.
4 Try to make 'fetch' happen
Regina's not the boss of you, okay? "Fetch" had its moment when the movie came out, and if you shoehorn it in every convo with your BFFs, it can have another one.
5 Pick up your bestie and go shopping
When you pull up, you already know what to say.
6 Bake a cake made out of rainbows and smiles and eat it and be happy
Shout out to crying girl.
7 Wear pink, even if it's not Wednesday
It hurts to realize this, but October 3rd was on a Wednesday two years ago. Mark your calendar: the next time "Mean Girls" Day falls on a Wednesday is October 3, 2029.
8 Make your face smell like peppermint
Despite calculated attempts by frenemy haters to bring her down, it worked for Regina.
10 Listen to Lindsay Lohan's song
No for real. Listen to Lindsay's anti-club banger "Xanax" where she compares her partner to the sedative. Fetch lyrics include: "I can't be in this club, it's too crowded and I'm f***ed. Ain't nobody care about us, but you're like Xanax to me."
11 Watch Amanda Seyfried sing Taylor Swift's 'Mean'
Seyfried blessed fans when she sang the "Mean Girls"-inspired Swift song. Watch her sing "I walk with my head down 'cause I kissed my cousin and I’ll never impress you. I just want to feel OK again."
