Mean girls

I met my three best friends from college during our Freshmen year. The four of us all lived in the same "suite" with six other girls. Our friendship took no more than three weeks to gel when it became clear that we were the mean girls. When I say "mean," I don't mean a bullying type of mean, but rather, we were mostly prone to giggling and gossiping about other people.

The movie that eptomized our humor was "Welcome to the Dollhouse," which was about the trials and tribulations of a 7th grader named Dawn Weiner. Poor Dawn is not only teased at school, but she is also clearly not her parents' favorite child. Yes, kids can be cruel sometimes but we didn't take this movie seriously and found it to be hilarious instead.

So that became our "test": the people who did not find this movie to be funny were not "cool" and did not become part of our tight-knit clique. And the people who did find it funny, well, you now have an "in."
