The Oldest Person In the World Attributes Her Long Life to Eating Eggs and Being Single

I remember just hearing on the news when the previous oldest person just died, she was the last known person to have been born in the 19th century.

At our high school reunion 2 years ago, I was noting to some of my classmates certain of the other ladies among us who hadn’t changed that much; suddenly, I realized that all those I was mentioning had never married.

Well, if she has a history of eating raw eggs every day, that could have affected her love life. I wouldn’t want my wife doing that.

Don’t remember her saying that she didn’t have a “love life.” Just not a HUSBAND.

Well, at least they were not boiled eggs. :grin:

Da*n near as old as me.
