One hundred ten years ago, a true hero was born.
Flossie Dickey was born on February 18, 1906. On her 110th birthday, this hero of the tired and the annoyed made her debut.
Between having one of the best names on the planet and living until 110, Flossie has earned the right to behave however she feels like. Like all natural born badasses, Flossie is not shy about showing her feelings towards people and their questions.
She is the heroine for all people who just want to be left alone on their birthdays. She is the spirit animal to everyone who wanted to commit a crime after hearing the ever so gentle, “Wow, you’re so old!”
At Flossie’s age, she has only two vices: naps and whisky. In fact, she “takes as many naps as [she] can”. A true hero.
Her friends can vouch for her love of liquor. Her friend, Chris, informs reporters that “her favorite thing is whiskey straight up.” What is more awesome than that?
If you’re looking for her secret to life, keep looking. Flossie is keeping her secrets locked up tight.
She won’t tell you the secret to a long life, or what foods to eat for a long life. With her secret-keeping and her whisky drinking, it’s easy to believe that she lives a double life for the CIA.
With 12 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren, and 15 great-great grandchildren, Flossie has done a lot. She lived through both World Wars, the Great Depression, and many more historical events. After everything she witnessed for the past 110 years, how does she feel?
She has no time no time for foolishness or for celebrating birthdays for that matter. Like all people who want to be left alone without interruptions, Flossie is done with people’s crap.
