But Lawrence Brooks here, the oldest of them all… chew gum and be nice.
According to CBS, Brooks, born on September 12th, 1909, celebrated his 110th birthday at the National WWII Museum.
“I heard that he was an old vet,” Lee Crean said. “And I said, ‘Well, we need to do something at the World War II Museum.'”
Crean, who works as the museum docent, met Brooks years ago at church and helped to launch their annual museum party every year on Brooks’ birthday. It’s a tradition that began in 2014, and one that employees hope won’t end anytime soon.
There you have it folks, some combination of whiskey, vodka, Coors Light, hot dogs, chewing gum, ice cream and being nice is the secret to a long life.
