When it was the early 2000's, I would say "two thousand three," and "two thousand eight" or "two thousand AND eight."

But when it started to get to get to 2010 and beyond, it felt too labor-intensive to keep saying the thousand part.

We say "nineteen-ten" and "nineteen-sixteen" so now I'm saying "back in twenty-ten" and "twenty-sixteen's been a bad year."

Same here!

i can't imagine it sounds that ridiculous, no?


if we said 2004 as "twenty-oh-four", how would we pronounce the year 2000? "twenty hundred"?


or "two hundred ten". whichever you like.

i've seen both used. "tens" a bit more often.

the last decade was the "noughties", but that seems like a recent development.

i hope we get to see flappers again. (but not the gangs)
