Suzie Was Nine...

The day before yesterday Suzie was nine years old. Next year she will be twelve. How is this possible?



Answer

Her birthday is on December 31. If today is January 1, then the day before yesterday, she was nine, yesterday she turned ten, this year she'll turn eleven and NEXT year she'll turn twelve! If you still don't get it, look at a calendar!

Hahaha! That's a good one. Baffled me, but had a d'oh moment after I saw the answer.

Though she wasn't actually nine on the 30th. A person doesn't age a year on their birthday. (Okay, so I'm picky!)

How is it that SPUTNIK2 has commented on like every teaser there is on this website. This person has way too much time on their hands. I will paste this comment into every comment board where I see SPUTNIK2 has commented. Why am I doing this, you ask? Because I feel like it. Deal with it.
