As I write this, the year 2020 has been happening for 317 days, 16 hours, 40 minutes, and 12 seconds. I know that because I’ve pretty much been counting this entire time. We all have. We’ve had little else to do. It’s been a year we’ll never forget, no matter how hard we try. But if we’re going to remember it with horror, maybe it can at least be a sort of funny horror, and nobody excels at funny horror better than Twitter.
Here are ten tweets to help us remember 2020 with at least a tiny bit of a smile.
10. Rounding the bases
But nobody’s ever out.
Seeing someone without their mask is 3rd base.

9. Do you have to let it linger
All of us just yawning performatively and saying “would you look at the time” as loud as we can.
2020 is like the last party guest you're waiting for to leave so you can go to bed and put the pieces of your life back together.

I like how we’ve kinda made peace with it by the end.

7. The good old days
The grass is always greener on the other side of the global emergency.
Covid has gotta stop, I miss partying with my friends…

6. Pick and choose
I hope it’s for all the right reasons.
I’ve worn a bra less than I’ve worn a mask this year

5. Remembering sasquatch
For all we know he could be sick too, it’s more important than ever.
Shout out to anyone still hunting for Bigfoot, as if that's anywhere on the list of priorities right now.

4. The three stages
Fodder for tacky wall art from here unto eternity.
“Drink drank drunk” is the 2020 version of “live laugh love”

3. Pew pew pew
Also yelling at people from across the street is now normalized.
Now that we can't shake hands or come near each other, finger guns are coming back and I'm pretty psyched about that. #Quarantine

2. How low can you go
But who can deny the absolute magic of a zoom date.

1. The future is bright
We’re far from out of the woods, kids.
I think it’s cute we’re all pretending shit will be back to normal on January 1, 2021. I love that for us. pic.twitter.com/AlVk1dNfvl

So long, 2020. It’s been not at all nice knowing you.
