20-Something Lessons We Learned From Clueless
It’s the 17th anniversary of Clueless and we remember it like was yesterday that we were walking around middle school with plaid miniskirts, saying “Whatever” while we were rolling with our homies. Yes, the movie changed our lives at that time… it also made us the women we are today.
In celebration of the milestone anniversary, here are 20-something things we learned from Cher and the crew.
- Think twice about guys who dress better than you.
- Sometimes you have to show a little skin. This reminds boys of being naked, and then they think of sex.
- Anything you can do to draw attention to your mouth is good.
- Never accept the first offer.
- Your best friend should be someone who gets you (ie., who also knows how it feels for people to be jealous of you).
- Stay away from sports where balls fly at your nose (for medical reasons, obvi.)
- Some people will not RSVP. But you can always make room. The more the merrier.
- It does not say RSVP on the Statue of Liberty.
- Sporadically means once in a while.
- Makeovers are fun, but use caution as to not turn your recipient into a monster.
- The at-home workout Buns of Steel doesn’t do much, and afterwards, your buns… they don’t feel nothin’ like steel.
- You should always have something baking when a boy comes over.
- Parties in the Valley usually get broken up by the cops.
- You must do a few laps around the party before you commit to a location.
- If you’re trying to set your friend up with a guy, definitely do a photo shoot.
- If your friend has a concussion, it’s better to ask her to sing a Coolio song than ask her math questions to see if she’s okay.
- Trouble at school or work? Make sure your teacher or boss is in love and then everything will be better.
- Old people can be so sweet.
- Never rely on mirrors to check an outfit. Always use Polaroids.
- Feeling sad? Go to the mall.
- The nerdy guy could actually be a catch… especially if he’s Paul Rudd.
