For Your Windows


on January 29, 2012

Okay, you were probably born in some decade last century. Maybe the 60’s or the 40’s or something like that. Please tell me, when my four younger grandchildren, all born between 2003 and 2008, are older how will they refer to the decade they were born in?  Having done a bit of research, I find that I am not the only person asking this question. Over the past 10 years there has been no consistent agreement on this.

Here are some of the choices.

1) The 2000’s

2) The aughties

3) The aught naughts

4) The naughties

5) The oh oh’s

6) The ohsies

7) The twenty hundreds

And now we are in the in-betweens maybe? Or is it the “tens”?

You would think that because this problem existed at the turn of the last  two centuries, someone would have found a solution. I think we need to come to an agreement on this  so we can hand it down to our future generations. 

I started For Your Windows in 2010. What is your suggestion on how I can refer to that later?
