Spokane, Washington resident Flossie Dickey turned 110 last week. In honor of this momentous occasion, poor Dickey is forced to endure an onslaught of newscaster cheer in a local news segment about her birthday. In response, Dickey glares at the camera, mutters apathetically or outright refuses to answer questions.
“Are you excited for your party?!?” the newscaster demands. “Not one bit,” Dickey grumbles in response.
“Can you ask Flossie … 110, obviously she knows a few secrets here. What is the key to living that long?” All of the newscaster’s attempts to extract the answer to longevity from her are for naught. She stares quietly into the camera before she apathetically mumbles something about how she just “lives it.”
Given Dickey’s lack of enthusiasm for birthdays and local news programs, what does she like?
An attendant at the care center where Dickey lives provides the answer: “Her favorite thing, according to her family, is to sit down and have some whiskey, straight-up.”
