We were talking to a man in The Jolly Quizmaster a while ago and we were curious as to his age. After a few guesses and light-hearted banter on the subject, he made the following statement:
"The day before yesterday I was 49 and next year I will become 52"
So when is his birthday and when were we talking?
He was born on 31st December and we were talking on 1st January.
The day before yesterday (ie 30th December) he was still 49. He turned 50 on 31st December. On 31st December this year he will turn 51, and on 31st December next year he will become 52.
