NYDailyNews - The world’s oldest living person reached another milestone Sunday when she celebrated her Sweet 116. Monroe, Georgia, woman Besse Cooper has become only the eighth person in the world — and the fourth American — verified to have turned that age, according to Guinness World Records. Cooper isn’t really sure why she’s lived so long, but has her theories, she told The Walton Tribune.“I mind my own business,” she said.
I’ll tell you what. For being a 116 years old Besse Cooper is kind of a looker right? Doesn’t look a day over 84. Like I think I’d throw it in her just to be a part of history. Also has anybody ever given better advice in the history of civilization than her? How has she lived to be 116 years old? Simple. She minded her own business. Aristotle couldn’t have said it any better.
PS – Can you have a better 116 year old name than Besse? Maybe Ethel?
