Does anyone know why the code below would return 5 or 6 for its value when LastContacted is 10/21/2009. I only want it to return 5 because there are 5 days in between today and that date.  

Any direction you can provide would be appreciated.
<cfset displaydate = dateDiff('d', LastContactDate, Now()) + 1 />
