So what's it going to be?
How are you going to say it?
Is it 2-thousand-10 or 20-10?
Think back more than a decade ago...did you ever say 1-thousand-9-hundred-95? Of course not! That takes entirely too long. You'd be weird. It was 19-95...for that matter it was 19-64, 19-75 and so on and so forth.
Not that I was alive and can recall but listening to people who make reference to the years more than 100 ago describe them as 'aught-8'...you know, "back in 'aught-8'"...it was 19-aught-8. It wasn't 1-thousand-9-hundred and 8. Heck it was even 19-08 before it was that long, drawn out version.
But for some reason most of us described the past decade as '2-thousand-1,2,3,4...and so on....not 20-01, 02, 03...etc, etc. I wonder why.
If for no other reason it's nice to be in another decade. It takes entirely too long to say '2-thousand-10' as opposed to '20-10'.
I'm happy about that....I wonder what I'll do with all that extra time?
