Well, not *exactly*, but:
If today happens to be Wednesday, and an event occurred last Friday, I
might say "a week ago Friday." Similarly, today, I could also say
"it'll be two years at my new job next month."
For an event that occurred approximately 310 days ago, I might say "less
than a year ago," and for an event that occurred approximately 350 days
ago, I might say "a little less than a year ago."
Or did you forget to put the winky there, and I fell for it?
