If you were to ask the fine people at Travelers, my apartment reached its one year anniversary yesterday. In their eyes, my home is one year old now. The previous owner was given the keys to my place on December 15, 2008. Of course, because of the various details, you could measure the age of my apartment in different ways. First, because the previous owner never moved in and no one actually lived in my apartment until me, you could argue the apartment didn’t start “aging” until I took possession on February 6th. Alternatively, you could say things didn’t really start until I moved in completely which would have been late spring.
Depending on how you squint at it, my apartment is either one year old, almost a year old, or barely six months old. I prefer to go with the six months assessment but I’m biased of course.
