What does half-a-century mean to us?
The phrase sounds great as compared to the number fifty which is half of a cent. Cent as in the number hundred and not the cent that denotes the lower denomination of a US Dollar.
Wonder if we have ever cheered up about our score cards showing half a century back in school or college or even at work... We were never happy about half a century achievements as much as a century... Wondering aloud why?? :)
The phrase is all about optimism. For a person who scores 50% in something, saying "half-a-century" makes it sound positive and optimistic and also inherently gives the pat-on-the-back that all of us sometimes need to come up in life.
You might want to compare it with what it feels like to say 50%. Well, it doesn't sound bad either, except when some people add the unnecessary word 'just' to it. Let me spell it for you.. "Just 50%...".
I am so glad that I have completed 'half-a-century' posts as dewdrop.
