What I’m trying to say is, we owe something to 2001. I feel bad for the way 2001 is treated. Where 2000 was the quarterback, 2001 is the kicker. Where 2000 was the lead guitarist, 2001 is the drummer. Where 2000 was pizza, 2001 is the anchovy.
It is underrated and underappreciated. Well, I happen to be a former drummer and I like anchovies and, well, OK, I’d rather be the quarterback than the kicker. But kickers have their moments.
In the game we call Time, this could be that moment.
But not without our help.
It’s too late to do anything about 2001’s New Year’s Eve. But it’s not too late to make it up to 2001. The year is still new. Think of 2001 as the calendar equivalent of a second chance. An opportunity to do everything you didn’t do in 2000.
After all, today is the first day of the rest of your millennium. Take a computer to lunch. - AW
