Billy and Drew discuss Y2K
(12/31/99)


In which our two stalwart heroes say good-bye to the 1900s:

*****

It's time for our once-every-millennium greeting to friends and family.

Again?  It seems like only yesterday that we were wishing Eric the Red and his crew well.

If you mean that red-headed guy you bumped during the pick-up game, it was yesterday.

Ah, that explains it.

So . . . have you stockpiled supplies for Y2K?

Sure.  I have the beer, chips n' salsa right here.

I'm talking about the essentials for the end of civilization as we know it.

And I'm not?

<sigh> So what should we tell people for the new millennium?

How about "Life begins at 2000"?

How about "The millennium doesn't begin until January 1, 2001"?

You and your legalese.  Can't you hold it for one night?

If this isn't the millennium, then we have nothing to commemorate.

Speaking of old, this argument must be 1,000 years old.

So's this pueblo, but you don't see me ignoring it.  Why not address the point?

As mother would say, "Because."

<rolls eyes> If you insist.  Let's get on with our greeting.

Okay, what'll it be?

How about "Peace, joy, and prosperity for the next 1,000 years"?

How about "Party like it's 1999"?

I prefer my message of "Peace."

And I prefer "Party."

"Peace."

"Party."

"Peace."

"Party."

<sigh> As you might say, "Can't we all get along?"

As you might say, "Ipso facto."

Which means . . . ?

Seek peace but don't forget to party.

Whatever.

Amen.
