It's the Roaring Twenties!
Wednesday, January 1, 2020
LL OF MY LIFE, I'VE HEARD of the Roaring 20s, you know? Apparently it was a great decade, you know? Obviously, I'm referring to the Roaring 1920s. Yet, here we are, all over again, entering into another 20s decade!*
I, personally, plan on Roaring through these 20s. Et tu?
I find it interesting, though, that the 1920s were tagged as the "Roaring" 20s, considering the fact that prohibition began in 1920, and lasted way beyond the end of the decade! How is a decade going to be Roaring when you can't drink?
Well, being an amateur history buff (of negligible renown) I have learned that prohibition actually resulted in MORE per capita drinking while it was in force!
Take THAT, temperance movement!
Be that as it may, I want to wish you and yours a very happy New Decade*! Drink up!
* I will NOT entertain the topic of how the decade actually starts in 2021. That may be a scientific fact, numbers-wise, but it has no bearing on the fact that I believe that fact is stupid.
