As if we weren’t celebrating enough useless holidays before like Valentine’s Day, apparently they’ve invented some bullshit “National Girlfriends Day.” Hey, why don’t we have like, a “National I’m Sad and Single and Pathetic Day” because I can’t deal with these stupid fucking relationship holidays anymore.
Oh, wait? It’s not just for romantic relationships? It’s for celebrating platonic relationships too? Okay, so how is that different from like, a National Friendship Day? When is National Friendship Day? Oh, it’s on August 7, less than a week away from National Girlfriends Day? Sure, that makes sense. Right, okay, so we must have a National Boyfriend Day, too, where guys celebrate their best bros, no? Oh shit, we don’t? Is it because it’s hard for guys to admit they have a bromance because it’ll shatter their masculinity? Okay got it.
So guys, today is National Girlfriends Day, so I guess call your best girlfriend or your actual girlfriend and tell them you love them. Or completely ignore this “holiday” because it’s totally unnecessary.
