bulls eye

Leila thinks its really fun to make people she's just met guess her age. The other night at our group show opening, her victim of choice was Diego, who is doing his medical residency with my friend Jenny.
"How old do you think I am?" she demands.
"11?" "No."
"10?" "No."
"9?" "No."
"7?" "No." Finally he guess "8". (My upward gesturing hands may have helped.)
Then Ali gets in on the action-  He's a little easier.
"5?" "No."
"6?" "Yes!"
The other Ali wants in, too. He's a little shorter than my Ali, so Diego thinks he MUST be 5, but no, he's 6, too.
Then Ali says- "How old is the baby?"
Immediately, Diego and Jenny both guess "32" (weeks, of course).
Those med students are good!
