The ABC’s of 2020

2020 was the crappiest year ever! I’m sure I’m not alone in thinking that way. So many people have been affected in negative ways – those who died from Covid-19 paid the ultimate price. I can’t help but think that if things had been handled differently, we would be entering 2021 a little more hopeful. Don’t get me wrong, I am more hopeful than I was a couple of months ago, but we have so much more to endure.

I was thinking this morning about all the words there were to describe this shitshow of 2020 and came up with so many! I thought, why not choose just one for each letter of the alphabet? So, this is what I came up with, with an explanation for each along the way.


A – Apocalyptic – because it’s the end of the world as we know it. Our way of life will never be the same.

B – Bizarre – with one freakin’ absurdity damn near every day, nothing surprising anymore!

C – Clusterfuck – the entire year summed up in one word.

D – Disastrous – needs no explanation!

E – Exhausting – needs no explanation!

F – Fucked – we have all felt this way since at least March.

G – Gong show – an event that proves to be a disaster, as did this last year.

H – Hell – needs no explanation!

I – Ignoramous – as in being led by an…

J – Juvenile – again, as in being led by a…

K – Kaput – broken and useless; no longer working or effective, as in our government.

L – Loneliness – it’s been an extremely lonely year.

M – Mayhem – violent or damaging disorder; chaos…

N – Nightmare – 2020 has been a nightmare for all but most especially for those who have lost loved ones.

O – Ominous – giving the impression that something bad or unpleasant is going to happen; threatening; inauspicious…the feeling I have had all year long!

P – Pandemic – needs no explanation!

Q – Quagmire – a difficult, precarious, or entrapping position; a predicament, as in what we have all been experiencing this year.

R – Rancid – if this year had a smell or taste!

S – Shitshow – a situation or event marked by chaos or controversy, as in 2020.

T – Tragic – The fact that so many people have lost loved ones UNNECESSARILY is freakin’ tragic!

U – Unprecedented – never done or known before, as in 45 doing whatever the hell he wants without following any procedure or law! 

V – Vaccine – the only thing that can help save lives at this point because too many people won’t do the right thing and wear a mask, or use social distancing to protect each other!

W – Weakened – I’ve felt my spirit become weakened over the year.

X – Xenacious – yearning for change!!

Y – Yucky – I’ve felt this way all year long.

Z – Zilch – exactly what 45 has done for this country!


There ya go! That’s my ABC’s of 2020! Don’t like my words? Pick your own. Maybe you can think of better ones! 

I am done with 2020 and I’m ready to take out the trash! I am ready for REAL leadership, not an adolescent child pretending to be big and bad. Is Joe Biden perfect? No, and he doesn’t pretend to be, unlike Donald Trump. Joe will make mistakes, of course. But he will at least listen to EXPERTS and not Fox News hosts who don’t know their ass from a hole in the ground. Joe will listen to SCIENTISTS. He will listen to his advisors. He will not disregard policies and procedures. But I am getting off track…

Let’s join together and make 2021 a better year, shall we??

Happy New Year, y’all!
