Hello! It’s 2020! Two-oh-two-oh! Twenty-Twen-T! Twenty Plenty! Two entire decades after the year 2000, when I was a high school sophomore celebrating New Year’s Eve at a party at my friend’s place, and her stepdad turned off the circuit breaker in the basement so the whole apartment complex thought Y2K was really happening, it was a TIME! And a very good joke! He turned the power back on and we all laughed and the universe expanded, because we were sixteen, and nothing bad was happening, and we ran down the streets with sparklers in our hands. We have the whole world in front of us, pals. We have all the sparklers we need.
