I know she wont see this, but hey she has earned it, WOW 117 years young.

 

 

TOKYO — The world’s oldest person says 117 years doesn’t seem like such a long time.

Misao Okawa, the daughter of a kimono maker, made the comment Wednesday, at a celebration a day before her 117th birthday. Appropriately, she was wearing a pink kimono decorated with cherry blossom prints.

Okawa, born in Osaka on March 5, 1898, was recognized as the world’s oldest person by Guinness World Records in 2013.

“It seemed rather short,” she said after Osaka government official Takehiro Ogura, who brought her a big bouquet, asked how she felt about living for 117 years.

I wonder what her secret is. Everyone who lives to that age has one and some of them are pretty weird.

It's mainly genetics and lifestyle, NotAnElf :)

Agreed but they never say that! It's always something like drink half a bottle of whiskey a day or eat two mushrooms a week.

Even if it doesn't work you'd have on hell of a life.

 

Here's another tip for the ladies (and probably the men too):
