The middle of December’s almost here, but I just heard a reference on TV to something happening “this year” in January.
No, I hadn’t missed it.
The event was coming up in January 2019.
Let’s all be careful out there — “this year” means 2018. If you mean the future and want to say something sounding exciting, there’s always “next month.”
Using “next month,” or just writing or saying “in January 2019,” will make it clear that you’re talking about the future.
Let’s be careful so that we don’t miss things!
