It's time to go back to a cursed moment in every woman who grew up in the early '00s.
A time when we were wearing jeans and a nice top, too much bronzer on our faces, incessantly saying the word 'biatch!' and had Maroon 5 playing on our purple iPod Minis.
Yes, we're talking about 2004. The blessed year that Tina Fey's Mean Girls arrived.
Like the characters in this iconic film, I was also in high school the year it premiered. This means it's impossible to separate the film from my lived experience enduring public school not at the fictional North Shore in Illinois but in a suburban town on the outskirts of Melbourne.
Sure, we wore school uniforms and none of us looked like Rachel McAdams or Lindsay Lohan, but there were loads of parallels. And 20 years later, Mean Girls is making a comeback with the Broadway musical now turned into a movie.
It's a rich tapestry of Mean Girls media.
The new movie was billed as "This isn't your mother's Mean Girls," which is a personal attack I will never recover from.
