Jessie Gallan celebrated her birthday this year with a single slice of cake. A pretty low-key birthday party considering it was her 109th birthday and she’s now thought to be officially the oldest person in Scotland.
And she’s happy to share her secret: “My secret to a long life has been staying away from men,” Jessie told The Daily Mail. “They’re just more trouble than they’re worth.”
We can’t argue with that. She never got married and now she's 109. “I also made sure that I got plenty of exercise,” she said. “[And] eat a nice warm bowl of porridge every morning.”
As for being the oldest woman in Scotland, Jessie doesn’t seem too impressed by it all: “If I am the oldest person, well, that’s all right. I cannot help it.”
Watch a short interview Jessie did just after her 108th birthday (because it’s just not the same without hearing her wise words in a cute Scottish accent).
And speaking of men, Jennifer Lopez hates being called a cougar!
