Dare to be Different
Everyone seems to be saying twenty ten. Well, I like to go against the grain, (always have, always will) so I had decided to stick to my guns no matter what everyone else was saying. I heard local radio commercial this morning and it was the first time since the new year I heard someone say two thousand ten. I wondered if the people that wrote the commercial inteded for them to say 2000 or 20???
Then, I get to work and see this.
It's official, I'm sticking with two thousand ten!!!!! The calendar people can't be wrong.
