See that title? That’s how you’re supposed to say it. The “and” is unnecessary (as in “two thousand and eight”).
A number can be a noun: “I wish you a healthy and prosperous 2008.”
Or an adjective: “Nice car. Is that the 2008 model?”
Either way, skip the “and.”
Do you say “and”? It’s not the end of the world, and I refuse to be that guy who corrects people, like:
“Man, I just lost seven hundred and forty-nine dollars on that horse. I think I’m gonna cry.”
“Um, actually, that’s seven hundred forty-nine, suck it up.”
It just makes me feel good to know that teachers at private grammar schools and the Nation of Islam both approve of my everyday language skills.
