2010: (Don’t say Poh-taw-toe)November 11, 2009 -
Next year is 2010. For the last year I’ve been trying to tell people how we should say this as a society.
I’m hearing a lot of people say “Two thousand and ten“. I totally understand, you’re adding one to the “nine” at the end of this year; but I think this is a misstep – “Twenty Ten” sounds cooler, uses less syllables and is what Sci-Fi actors have been saying for years.
The only time I think it’s right to say “Two thousand and ten” is if they were saying “One thousand Nine hundred and ninety nine” a decade ago.
Spread the word.
