An Englewood, New Jersey woman, Agnes Fenton, celebrated the incredible milestone of turning 110 years old this past Saturday, making her a supercentenarian, a status only one out of approximately 10 million people can claim. And Fenton attributes her longevity to good old-fashioned Miller High Life and Johnnie Walker Blue — not to be confused with Audrey Lott, another Scotch-loving woman who turned 110 a few years ago. If I’m sensing a pattern here, this apparently means that I’ll live to be 300.
At any rate, Fenton started this ritual about 70 years ago, when a doctor who diagnosed her with a benign tumor prescribed three beers a day for her condition, because it was the 1940s and doctors probably still used leeches back then . Presumably, she added the Scotch because Agnes Fenton is clearly a woman of fine taste.
Sadly, because she no longer eats a robust daily diet, Fenton’s caregivers no longer let her have alcohol, but here’s hoping the special lady got some Johnnie Walker on her big day. YOLO?
