Cheers to twenty ten!
While I was home in Rochester, NY over the holidays, one topic of discussion over a family dinner (pizza and beer, I believe) was what people will call 2010. Will they say “two thousand ten”, “two thousand and ten”, “twenty ten”, “ten”, “o-ten”, or something I haven’t even thought of? Even more vexing, how will people eventually refer to the 2000’s? Will we revert back to the 1900’s and say the 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, etc?
There’s not really a point to that story, other than to illustrate the random conversations that take place in my parent’s household. However you decide to say it (personally, I think I’ll use “twenty ten”), don’t take 2010 for granted. Appreciate every little second this new year brings, make healthy decisions, be kind to others, and above all, stay true to yourself. Take a little break from work once in a while, too!
