The Age Factor

Many a time, I have seen a confusion on how people tell their age. On being asked "How old are you?", they say, "24 running". "Running" ???????? A funny choice of word to tell the age...

The right statement would have been, "23", ain't it? Which, indirectly, rather, directly means, "23 years complete, and obviously, currently my 24th year is ongoing".

1st year birthday party is not celebrated on the day the baby was born, but after the baby has completed her first one year...This is the explanation that I usually give to such confused people :-)
