You could knit a sweater by the fireside

I updated my profile on italki, including date of birth, and I ticked the box “Allow people to view my age.” Why not?

Then I checked how my profile appeared online and I was horrified. My age was showing as 65! Why, I’m only 64, not 65, and I won’t be 65 until August! What a blunder of programming! How deeply they had got me wrong!

I immediately went back and unticked the box.
