Actually, I believe David meant, that after he turned 23 the first time, he restarted to count. That is, the next year he was 1, then 2 and so on, so that now he has turned 23 a second time. Using that system and your statement would make your dad 729 years old. <grin>
What you meant, I assume, is that the year after your dad turned 27, her turned 27 again, and did that for the next 26 years, right? Making him 54.
A friend of mine used the expression, "I'm 18, with 5 years of experience."
