I’m one of those people that just assumes I’m gonna be twenty-something for the rest of my life and dreads the idea of getting old. But the cliche saying “you’re only as old as you say you are” has a lot of truth to it, especially after reading about this woman.
She’s 99 years young and wants to swing around on a pole for her 100th birthday.
Apparently this woman is in perfect health for her age; she’s not on any medication, just a daily glass of wine keeps her going. She’s already got the pole installed in her house. Now a couple of lessons from a pro, and he’s good to go!
Her daughter told NBC12:
“We have worked it out that we are going to set up a pole for her. And she is going to do a pole dance. Very tasteful dressed. Not in the leopard print leotard that she once suggested, but she will stand up by the pole because that was her dream.”
Huffington Post has the entire story here, and a video for good measure.
So, what you’re saying is, the trick to living 100 years old is drinking wine and pole dancing? Noted.
