While reading “A Walk to Remember” I found some interesting sentences:
She was big, at least six feet two, with flaming red hair and pale skin that showed her freckles well into her forties. She was also overweight - I’d say honestly she pushed two fifty.
- “well into her forties”, does it mean she’s over forty, maybe in her mid or late forties?
- “pushed two fifty” I don’t understand what “push” means here. I guess “she weighed as much as two fifty (100 pounds)”. What does “push” mean exactly?
- Two fifty means, I guess, 100 pounds. Then you can simply say a hundred, but why would you call it “two fifty”?
Please satisfy my curiosity!
Thank you in advance,
