So, we all agree it's been a pretty terrible year, right?
However, we're finally nearing the end of 2017 and it's time to do a little reflecting.
To help us reflect, we asked patron saint of our childhoods, LeVar Burton, to read us a story.
We present to you, Another Round's ABC's of 2017 by Tracy Clayton and Heben Nigatu.
A is for alternative facts, what adults now call lies.
B is for Beyonce, and the apples of her eye.
C is for contouring, YouTube’s big obsession.
D is for debt, which a lot of folks are left in.
E is for emoji, our modern Romance language.
F is for fidget spinner because even our kids are anxious.
