Aging Gracefully

This morning N told me that he preferred the french way of describing numbers when saying his age, since he feels he’s still in his thirties.  So instead of forty-three, he’s now “thirty plus thirteen”.  I asked him what would happen when he turned fifty – thirty plus twenty? He informed me that he’d go back to regular numbering then, since he’d be old by then.
