Every time there’s an interview with a really old person they always come up with some completely ridiculous secret to long life that they absolutely swear down by and unsurprisingly 110 year old Grace Jones is no different.
Grace is the 10th oldest person in the UK and reckons that the reason she’s still alive is because she always drinks whiskey before she goes to bed. Sounds realistic:
I never miss my night cap. All I have is the whisky at night.
Whisky is very good for you. I started having a nightly tot of it when I turned 50 so I’ve been having it every night for the last 60 years and I certainly have no intention of stopping now.
My doctor said “keep up with the whisky Grace, it’s good for your heart”.
I still feel the same as I did when I was 60. I feel fine. I feel full of spirit. I have got seven cards from the Queen now. This year’s was a very nice one.
Well again I’m sceptical that having some whiskey every night before you go to bed is a good way to stay alive, but hey I’m willing to give it a shot if this woman is backing it, starting tonight. Anybody want to join me?
If that doesn’t work, I can always listen to this other 112 year old woman who reckons that the secret to long life is chain-smoking. Believable.
