A 107-Year-Old Woman Celebrated Her Birthday By Hanging Out With The Harlem Globetrotters

In the unlikely event that any of us reach 107 years old, the only thing we could reasonably ask for is good health and a high quality of life. But that’s just me. Virginia McLaurin, who just celebrated her 107th birthday over the weekend, is living on a totally different level. Last month, McLaurin got to fulfill a lifelong dream by meeting Barack and Michelle Obama. This week, she spent some time celebrating with the Harlem Globetrotters dancing, spinning basketballs and overall being awesome:

“I didn’t think I’d ever get the chance to meet them, but I always watched them and I used to try to do what they did with the ball,” she told the Washington Post. For her birthday, McLaurin also received a personalized Globetrotters jersey with a 107 on the back:

So, yeah, forget birthday weeks. Those are for suckers. Spend your 107th (and the month leading up to it) hanging out with the president of the United States and then spinning basketballs with the Harlem Globetrotters, and then ask everyone else what they did.
