When I grow young I want to be Betty White!
Still high steppin’ at 90, my best gal recently joined Twitter.
What does Betty think about aging? The video below will give you a darned good idea.
“I can’t get over that at this age I don’t feel this age. I’m not trying to be any younger. I’m not lying about my age. If I were lying about my age, I would say I was 89.”
“I’m a teenager trapped in an old body.”
Referring to old age,
“It’s not a surprise, we knew it was coming – make the most of it. So you may not be as fast on your feet, and the image in your mirror may be a little disappointing, but if you are still functioning and not in pain, gratitude should be the name of the game.”
“They aren’t going to get rid of me that way.”
And about being a woman,
“Why do people say ‘grow some balls?’ Balls are weak and sensitive. If you wanna be tough, grow a vagina. Those things can take a pounding.”
Go get ‘em, Betty!
Need more inspiration? See Mathilda Klein…
I received this video by email from a friend. No information was attached and my first guess at the spelling of Mathilda Klein brought up the news clip below the video.
“Watching Matilda Klein waiting in the wings to be called forward for her solo performance…one would never expect the 94-year-old woman to have the energy it takes to be a ballroom dancing star.
But once Klein takes to the stage — slowly ridding herself of her walker — she is simply astounding.
Moving with the spunk and agility of a woman half her age, she dances circles around her much younger dance partner and instructor Danny Maloney.
…Klein — who is affectionately known as Tilly — said that she has been dancing with Maloney for 11 years.
‘I just love the feel of it. It keeps me alive,’ she said, adding that she’s been dancing all her life.”
