New Year’s Eve Writing Prompt

Posted by at 5:42 am in Writing Prompt | Permalink

It's the last day of 2009, the last day of the year, and the last day of the DECADE! But this year we have a problem — what to call this decade? 

The years 1980-1989 are called the Eighties. The years 1990-1999 are called the Nineties. So we can say, "I like Eighties music." or "I was born in the Nineties." But what about this decade that's almost over? How are you going to say that you like the music from this decade? or whatever from this decade!

What should we call the years 2000-2009? Give me your ideas in the Comments.

    I think we should call anything that has 2 at the front the 2000′s. So from 2000 all the way to 2999, we call it the two-thousands.

    i would say the 100′s because 1990-1999 was the 90′s so since there was 50′s then 60′s 70′s 80′s then of corse the 90′s wel after 90′s would be 100′s! but thats a really hard question i just think 100′s is the only reasonable answer!
