Post A Certain Age

For those who have had this happen, at what age did you stop saying I'm almost (insert age) and start saying I won't be (insert age) until ...?

Just curious. I find myself saying this, this year. I'm not saying I'm almost 38. I'm saying I'm still 37 until the 20th.

I don't do that, but I've taken to blurring it as "middle to late 50s," which could be anything from 53 to 59. You can probably guess which of those I'm closer to.

You stop saying "I'm almost . ." at about 25, and start again at age 70! lol

I think I made the switch when I was in my late teens.

A few weeks ago my sister asked me how old I was now and I told her that I would be 38 special for another month.

Tell people that you are 10 years older than you really are and they will say "you don't look it!"(hopefully!) If they don't react
