She's probably right...100 years from now, will you be saying two thousand, one hundred seven?

That said, I say two thousand seven like everyone else. It gets tiresome when you're the only one standing up for something like your friend is. Kinda like the debate over which year was the start of the new century...2000 or 2001. The popular choice was 2000 but WE all know it was really 2001.

Right?

I think that was on your favorite forum, MBWorld...

Every year about this time my friend and I get into this argument. I am keeping track of the poll results for future reference--to see how people's opinions change from year to year. Are you following me around again? Do I need to have my shoes polished again? I thought we patched that up...

Lose the hat...

She keeps asking me: "When was the last time you said "ninteen-hundred-ninty-nine (for 1999)?"

Unless she said nineteen-hundred-ninety-nine, she has zero credibility with me.
