[ Origin: As I've hit my early 30's, I've often found it necessary to qualify my evaluations of people ]

- examples
1. Last December I was tipping the scales at a lifetime high of 165-170, which isn't too bad for being 33, but had I been 20 I'd have been fat.

"I don't know, she was kind of older."
"She was totally a seven for thirty-five."

2. "He's put on some weight. I think he's a little chubby."
"For twenty maybe. He's fine for thirty."
