Every time I read a story about someone who’s lived to be 100 and then some, I immediately take stock of my own life and think, “What do I need to change to get there too?” But after hearing Florence Bearse’s story, when it comes to my wine consumption, I’m not changing a damn thing.
The Bangor, Maine resident recently celebrated her 100th birthday, and when asked about her secret to making the century mark, she had an instantly iconic response:
“I like my wine. Don’t take it away from me.”
Florence! That’s the kind of straight to the point life advice that folks need. In truth, it’s extremely unlikely that she’s made it this far chugging the stuff down, but a gal can dream. As for what she’s stayed away from these past decades?
“Don’t take any bologna.”
