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."
YAAAS, 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."
Florence forever. <3
