Welp, it's 2022. Happy New Year, I guess. Now, those of us who still write checks have to learn / remember to write 2022 on everything.
So what was 2021 exactly? It seems to me like 2021 was a year that wasn't. The year 2020 was cursed with a dreaded faux pandemic which pretty much
destroyed the world, certainly the world economy anyway. We all endured 2020 and the vast majority of us survived, all hoping that 2021 would bring
us some relief, some hope, and the belief that things would maybe, just maybe, return to normal. Many of us rang in the new year of 2021 with great
satisfaction as we flushed the turd that was the year 2020 down the toilet. The long uphill battle of 2020 had finally ended. Thank God, and Good
And along came the year 2021. Nothing changed. The Bullsh##, with a capital 'B', just continued, ad nauseum. All that hope just vanished, and
people realized nothing was going to go back to normal. There was no "normal" left to go back to. 2021 was just more of the same. Another year
off of all of our lives, and the long uphill slog just continued. The sun never came out really, and the dark clouds of masking up, social
distancing, and placating some imaginary evil just went on...and on. Oh sure, we all went through the motions, pretending things were normal. We
celebrated birthdays, and holidays, as if things were normal, but they weren't. The grey pall of death and disease was never far away. A simple
press of the TV remote, however brief, never let anyone forget.
So, what was 2021 exactly? It's like a year that never even happened. What will 2021 be remembered for? Nothing. Even though I, like many others,
had major events happen in 2021, I can't even really remember 2021 and it's only behind me by one day, if even that.
We can say goodbye to 2021 much the same as we did to the year 2020...Good Riddance, you sour old bat! But wait...did 2021 even happen????
It seems to me like 2021 never even really happened, not even a blip in time. Like everyone just went into some kind of a time warp, and the World
just skipped a year. Old man time didn't spare us aging another year though, of course not. If anything, many of us aged even more than just a
single year in 2021, sitting on our butts with nothing to do, and falling apart. What was 2021??? Did it really even happen???
2021...the year that wasn't.
