Aunty Annie's secret to a long life

I just got home from a couple weeks away in Mexico, and my first stop was to visit Aunty Annie. Technically, she's not my aunty, but she's been a long-time family friend and such a special part of my life that I wouldn't consider her anything less than my own kin.

The incredible thing about this constantly positive woman is she's freakin' 97 YEARS OLD and in markedly better shape -- physically and mentally -- than my own parents, who are 20 years her junior.
 
Her secret? She insists it's chocolate, ice cream, Coca-Cola, and not getting married.

Wise words, Aunty. Wise words.
