I am the Number 31!

Well, no, not really... I just got " hào" and " suì" mixed up when we were practicing in class. We were discussing ages. I said, " Wǒ jīnnián shì sān shí yī hào.", which more or less translates as, "Today I am the 31st" or the number 31. " hào" designates numbers in a series. What I should have said was, " Wǒ jīnnián shì sān shí yī suì.": "Today I am 31 years old." Still, if I have to be a number, 31 isn't a bad choice. At least it's prime! ^/^
