“Was there a year one?” July 15, 2007

So Bridget and I are taking the Metro North back to NYC tonight and these two teenage boys are sitting in the seats in front of us across from each other (like typical teenagers they were taking up a group of seats by laying across them). One of the boys says to the other: “man it’s crazy…we’re gonna be graduating college in like 2013. That’s crazy.”.

The other teenager just nods and says something like yeah, I can’t believe it.

The first teenage now says one of the stupidest things I’ve EVER heard come out of anyone’s mouths (and I’ve heard some stupid things heard over the years). The teen says: “Yeah, I don’t know why they just don’t reset years. Like start at 100 or 1000 or something. (long pause) Was there a year one?”

He honestly said that in all sincerity. Was there a year one.

The other teen didn’t answer right away and I noticed he shot his friend a “what the fuck” kinda look. Like are you serious dude.

Well the teen who asked said question waited for a response. No chuckle. No “I’m just fuckin with you”. He was dead serious.

So the obviously smarter teen said something like “umm, yeah dude…when Christ died they started the calendar after his death. But before that they counted years too.”

To which the dumber teen said…oh cool.

Oh cool. Nice. Dude…lay off the fuckin drugs. Seriously. Unless you’re planning on enrolling in P.C.U. then you should really make sure you’re living on this planet.

Anyway I found it kinda funny. I whispered to Bridget “did you hear what that kid just said”. Which she didn’t. And I don’t blame her. She was wrapped up in reading People magazine. Although after telling her we shared a laugh…and then went back to reading about things that matter most in this world…like celebrities.

I can’t believe Prince Charles was caught wearing all of Lady Di’s clothes. And Liberace was gay? Who would have saw that coming???

Wow. Is there a year one? Really? Really?! Ugh.

That’s terrible. Celebrities are great, though.

I wish I could say I was smarter when I was a teenager…

BTW: How do we know if there was a year one?
According to Microshaft, the world began in 1980…that’s as far as the windows calendar will go back…
