We are barely past the half way mark for this year and already a lot has happened. Nearly all of Australia burned down, the potential start of World War 3, the impeachment of an American president, the biggest Dow Jones plunge in over 30 years, the summer Olympics cancelled, the death of NBA star Kobe Bryant, mass protests in every state in America and all throughout the world, and a global pandemic that has cost the lives of over 618,000 people (to date). All of these things and more just make you want a nice stiff drink doesn’t it. Bartender make it a double. Actually, you know what….make it a triple! But not everyone likes booze. My mother for one hate it. But that doesn’t stop me and the rest of my family from making her try different drinks just to see the expression of disgust on her face. You’ve seen people make that face before. After the alcohol touches there lips their head shakes back and forth, their faces squishes like they just ate a lemon, their tongue sticks out, and they invariably all say “BLECH”. But that look, that look right there I think is a perfect metaphor for our reaction to 2020 so far. Just a universal sign of disgust and disdain. After you take a big swig of 2020 THAT is the look that you automatically make. So what could be in that glass? What liquid concoction is 2020 made of? That’s what I asked Twitter this week with the hashtag #If2020WereAnAlcoholicDrink and BOY did Twitter really have something to say about this one! There were over 11,000 tweets to go through and we made it to the #2 spot in the U.S. We even had an Avenger play the game! So check out the top list below and don’t forget to join me every Tuesday at 11 am EDT. for the next exciting episode of “Hashtag, You’re It”. And let me just raise a glass to 2020 with a toast just for it………..”Up Yours!”
