Mid-Forties? Almost Fifty?

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."

that sounds about right

Laurie said...

Lorna - I knew you'd understandy. You're still in your mid-forties, too.

I guess that puts me smack in the middle of my thirties.

Tell them you're 60, and they'll think you look incredible.

Laurie said...

Rebecca - That sounds about right. :)

George - That's my theory, too! I've actually done that before. :)
