9 FIGHTS EVERY 90'S GIRL HAD WITH HER BESTIE GROWING UP
DURING THE TIME of beanie kid collectIONS and Britney Spears' REIGN, THE 90'S WERE A GREAT TIME. IN MY EYES, THEY WERE A SIMPLER TIME.
Of course we had fights with our besties back then, just like we do today. But they were more about who dressed like Lizzie McGuire the best and who had the most Tamagotchis. So in remembrance of this great decade, we're taking a trip down memory lane to the nine fights that were oh so real between us 90's girls back in the day.
1. When you shared each other’s lip smackers
Watermelon was your favourite, but every time you let them borrow it, you ended up with a chewed up mess that was less than useless. Great tasting lip smackers were both great, and a burden.
2. When you both wore the same coloured jellies
You always owned the blue and purple, what right did your friends have to copy? None. Seriously, what kind of friend does that?
3. They tore the tagS of your beanie kids
Well great, there goes your grand plans of making A LOT of money from your collection one day. You were sure that your thousands of beanie kids (tags and all!) were going to make you millions later down the track, and now that dream is over.
4. They beat you on Mario Kart
Life over – enough said.
5. You both wanted to be the same Spice Girl
Why did everyone want to be Baby Spice?! You're clearly the better person for the job, why must your friends try and ruin your life? This was the vein of our existence for most of the decade.
6. You totally didn't want to share your Discman
Because one earphone is nowhere near as good as two, and lets not get started on the issue of whose CD's did you get to listen to. Yes, we said CD's... (Google it youngins)
7. When your bestie wore more butterfly clips than you
You had to out do them; sparkly butterfly clips would redeem you as the Queen of all butterfly clip wearers.
8. The eternal debate: Backstreet Boys vs NSYNC
Nick Carter all the way guys, it's as simple as that.
9. WHEN THEY GOT A MOVE WRONG DURING A COORDINATED DANCE sequence
Great, I guess we have to start again from the beginning...
