At work, yesterday.
- Your new haircut looks great. Easily takes 5 years off of you.
- (after calculating how old I'd be, minus 5 years) I didn't realize I needed 5 years taken off just yet.
- (after a moment's hesitation) Oh, sorry, that's what they say at my age [she's 39]. For you, it's more like 3 years. Yes, definitely takes 3 years off.
