I really like old people. They’re cute, and brutally honest, and they kind of remind me of raisins, which I love. I would probably even prefer old people to babies. I realize that’s an unpopular opinion, but I need a little conversation to keep me interested, and old people always have the funniest shit to say.

Mildred Bowers is a 102-year-old Mount Pleasant woman. Mildred, a.k.a. “Millie,” lived through the great depression, and even managed to stay kickin’ long after her two husbands, with whom she had zero children. That alone is enough for me to respect the shit out of her, but here’s the best part: Millie attributes her longevity not to exercise or healthy eating, but to beer.

This chick is older than dirt, and still drinking daily in her assisted living home. Apparently the idea came about when she asked some nurses if she would be able to dabble in a little happy hour every afternoon, to which the nurses responded, “Why not?” I guess they figured that since our gal has made it this far, a little booze couldn’t hurt, right? I don’t know. Only thing I can be sure of is that there’s a good chance this lady might be my long lost great grandmother, even though I have it on good authority that my liver will crap out long before I’m 102.

Is it too late to give her a bid?

Lucky Jo is much less medicated than her mother and sister, and she tends to think that’s a good thing. She's the newest full-time addition to the Grandex office, which is probably why they gave her the shittiest desk. In her free time she enjoys scaring small children, judging her peers, and condescendingly talking to GDIs at Starbucks. Follow her on twitter for cat memes and complaints. Email her at
