In the year A.D. 200, a good year was beginning...
I got an e-mail from a friend wishing me a happy new year. However there was a typo.
It said: "それでは、２００年がイサクさんにとって良い年になりますように"
Or in English: "I hope the year 200 will be a good year for you, Isaque."
The "２００年" bit means "the year 200". It probably was supposed to be "２００８年".
Since I'm terrible, I decided to pick on it and even go as far as to make a comic derived from it.
"Around the year 200...."
"It seems like this year will be a good year."
"Oh yeah, you're right."
