Somethin to think about

Okay... i have a fun question.
Chad & I were talking about some good ol' times back in the 90's. That got us to thinking.... We've been a society that references times by blocks of years (60's, 70's, 80's, 90's).
What do say in a few years about the years 2000 - 2009? Do we say "back in the 00's"?

Do we just speak of them individually? Even the 10's... do we say teens?
It may seem like a silly question & I'm sure we will figure it out when the time comes, but it's kinda fun to try to figure out now. Think about it, if you have any thoughts, let me know :)...inquiring minds wanna know.

Hey, Jeni- I LOVE the new look! WOW!
Anyway, that's a great question...
I have to get back with you on that one. I'll be curious to see what others think.

So funny... great question, though. And when we get to the 20's, can we call them the 20's?? 'cuz won't that be the 1920's?? Or will it be so far removed... lol

Y'all are too funny.

Well, over here in lil' Old Europe - where British English is dominate in business, and the word "naught" is more commonly used to refer to the number 0, it is often referred to as the Naught Decade, which takes good fun stab at it being the "Not Decade" - which is appropriate considering how generally bad this decade has gone so far. :)
