Hey, 2010, where are you going? It seems like you just got here and already we’re preparing to say goodbye.
I remember as a child asking older relatives about their ages. Often they would pause, and then do a bit of math in their heads before spitting out an age.
Frequently, they’d realize they had miscalculated and would soon make a correction and indicate another age, most often a number higher—another year older—than originally thought.
