What a legend.

Betty is gearing up to celebrate her 99th birthday this Sunday, a hell of an accomplishment for anybody, so… what’s her secret?

In an interview with Parade, Betty says:

“Accentuate the positive, not the negative… It sounds so trite, but a lot of people will pick out something to complain about, rather than say, ‘Hey, that was great!’ It’s not hard to find great stuff if you look.”

As for food, her secret ticket to a long and healthy life? Two staples:

Vodka and hot dogs, “probably in that order.”

That’s what we like to hear.

However, due to the coronavirus pandemic this year, Betty plans to celebrate her birthday “visiting with close friends and bringing food to my animal friends.”

Happy Birthday Betty.
