09:51 pm - talking to dad
So I was talking to my dad yesterday morning and referred to a certain commercial I'd seen a while back. I was about to say "there's this teenager, about 14, and this old guy, about 70" and then I realized that my dad is 71. So I said, "...and this old guy, about 80." When do I switch the "old guy" age to 90? When he's 75, maybe?

Or you could leave "old"out of the description and just say "a guy about 70". Some of us aren't all that sensitive about age. I see a lot of people I think of as "old", but find out they're younger than me.
