  • The new year...whaddya gonna call it?

    Okay, so it's not one of the great burning controversies of our time. But the new year is here. So, I thought I'd conduct an informal survey of MiceChatters.

    Is it....Two-thousand ten?

    Or..."20-10 as in "twenty-ten"

    In this last decade, I've felt compelled to say two-thousand-whatever.

    But now it's time for 2010.

    Your thoughts?
    45
    Two thousand ten
    26.67%
    12
    Twenty-ten
    66.67%
    30
    '10
    2.22%
    1
    Or something else entirely (please leave your suggestion)
    4.44%

      Twenty-Ten seems to be what most are saying ... It makes sense, we had Nineteen, Eighteen, and Seventeen, etc. before that. Two Thousand seemed to be easier to say then like Twenty-Oh-Nine, so those ten years were an exception. We're now back on track saying the year as we have for hundreds of years prior.

        So far it's 67 per cent for 20-10

          You should have included a poll Barry.

              I meant to. I hit the wrong button, I guess, when I created the thread.

              I was even going to leave people a chance to vote for "other".

                I can add one for you! What would you like it to say?

                Two thousand ten
                Twenty-ten
                Just plain '10

                Now we can all reminisce and say old timey stuff like, "I remember way back in Seven..." :lol: Maybe we should just start over like that!

                  Or "ot-seven" as I heard many references to the first decade of the 20th century

                      I say twenty-ten, because it seems to have a more futuristic sound to it, and just sounds better, in my opinion.

                        two thousand ten
                        just like two thousand nine
                        Good morning, son
                        In twenty years from now
                        Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                        And I can tell you 'bout today
                        And how I picked you up and everything changed
                        It was pain
                        Sunny days and rain
                        I knew you'd feel the same things...

                          I like the sound of twenty-ten, but now that I'm thinking about it, I'll probably stick with two thousand ten. Gotta sneak in that place value lesson wherever I can at work!

                              But you can't call it that anymore. There's a one in the ten's place now, so it doesn't work unless you want to call it 2-ought-ten. That's way too much work!
