I have a co-worker who will be 47 next month. She told another co-worker, "Oh, my God. I'm almost 50."
The co-worker told her, "You are not almost 50, you are still in your mid-forties."
I walked up on this conversation in mid debate and was asked, "Laurie, is 47 mid-forties or almost 50,"
I said, "You can't go by me. I still tell people I'm in my mid-forties and I'm 53."
