The eternal dilemma

Yesterday I was so happy because I read the story of the woman in Newfoundland who is 106 years old and eats pizza and fries. My hero.

But then today I see that the fat aptly-named rapper Heavy D dropped dead at age 44.

You can't win. Statistically speaking I'd imagine that for every 106-year-old pizza-eating woman, there are ten fatties not making it to 50. Sigh.

Here's the way I look at it: eat relatively healthy until the age of 85. After that (should you live that long) it doesn't really matter what the hell you eat (pizza, fries, ice-cream. chocolate) because after 85, it's all gravy anyway...mmmm! gravy!

True. When my mother was over 80, she ate a lot of ice cream and chocolate Turtles. At first, sis and I thought this was not good, but it didn't take long for us to say: Heck, she's 80, let her eat what she wants.

Turtles, Turtles, la la la
Turtles, Turtles, ha ha ha.

Actually, I have decided to lower the age to 75.

85 is kind of pushing it!
