I just got a book from the library. It looks as good as new, so I checked when it was printed. Before I got there, I noticed when the book was published.
Me: Oh, this book isn’t that old! It was published in 2002. Which is….
Me: 12 years ago? 2002 was 12 years ago? That is so wrong! I started college in 2002. It was supposed to be recently, not already 12 years ago…
TH (grinning): Welcome to the 30s, baby!
P.S. I turned 30 a few months ago!
