I hope mine is happy that I didn't let her down by not buying more guns this year! She really expects it from me, so don't want to disappoint her!

I realized I had a problem when I noticed that on the way home from the gun shop I had already been trying to figure out what the next gun was that I needed to buy....

Actually, no. SInce there was no year zero, the third decade does not start until Jan. 1st, 2021. Likewise the 21st century and the 3rd millennium did not start until Jan. 1st, 2001. :!:
