The decade’s almost half over… so what are we going to call it? It’s one of those things that’s been coming up time and again since 2000, what do we call this decade? We had The (nineteen) Nineties, Eighties, Seventies… etc. but there doesn’t seem to be a general consensus as what to call the present decade. Some are calling for the ‘naughts’, the double O’s, even the two thousands (in my opinion the worst one) I guess the best way to determine what to call this decade is to look back at other decades that ended with 00, such as 1900. 1900 to 1909 is often referred to as the nineteen hundreds. Similarly 1800 to 1809 is often referred to as the eighteen hundreds and so on. The problem with this is that it doesn’t have the same sort of “zing” as the other decades. “The hundreds” doesn’t sound nearly as cool as “the nineties.” A ‘Best of the nineties’ CD sounds fine, but imagine “Best of the hundreds’? Not so cool. So does this decade get screwed over? I think so.
