Girls and gays, ASSEMBLE — it’s National Iced Coffee Day
I can’t wait to drink my favorite meal
I didn't start drinking coffee until my senior year of college, and it's honestly offensive that nobody sat me down and made me drink anything stronger than a S'mores Frappuccino before then. Thanks a lot, "friends."
But now, both as a cog in the capitalist machine who needs to be Awake and Productive and a proud 50 percent of the phrase "girls and gays," I'm straight-up addicted to iced coffee — so imagine my surprise and delight (caffeine-fueled shock, caffeine-augmented delight) to discover that TODAY IS NATIONAL ICED COFFEE DAY! Seriously. I mean it.
A whole entire 24 hours dedicated to the most important meal of the day? This is bigger than Christmas (sorry Jesus) and Valentine's Day combined. I'm Lime-a-Rita away from being Halloween-level excited!
Again, girls and gays know when we drink iced coffee, we're basically drinking from the Fountain of Youth or the Holy Grail. We're FaceTuning, but in real life. We're carrying our iced coffees like a 14-year-old showing off the Michael Kors tote bag her aunt bought her for eighth grade graduation.
Iced coffee is the source of all our power — it's the 10-step Korean skincare routine of beverages.
Haters want you to think that replacing lunch or breakfast with iced coffee is a bad thing — and it is, if you feel obligated to "take care of your body" or "love yourself," trivial concerns to the average iced coffee connoisseur! Of course drinking iced coffee "isn't the same as eating a salad" and "won't make you happier in the long run!"
Did I say it would? Or did I say that I'm skinny? Because I am, and if you love iced coffee then you are too — it's a state of mind, baby, and the sooner you grab your $1 Dunkin Donuts and hit the streets like they're a runway, the sooner you'll wise the fuck up.
