Audrey Lott is turning 110 this Friday. Think about that—she was born during Theodore Roosevelt's presidency; she was 36 at the outbreak of World War II. By the time the U.S. landed on the moon in 1969, she was a senior citizen. She's seen the most amazing, rapidly-changing century in human history. And how'd she do it?
The Toledo (Ohio) News Now sent a reporter to Ms. Lott's birthday celebration, and the reporter, naturally, asked for her secret. Here's what she said:
LOTT: Scotch. I use scotch. Yeah, that’s my favorite drink. I like that better than any.
REPORTER: So you’re saying I should drink more scotch in my life?
[nurse repeats question]
LOTT: You don’t like scotch, you don’t know what’s good.
God bless you, Audrey Lott. Here's to another 110 years.
