Every morning, I wake up at 7, wash up, do my 50 squats and stretches, get dressed, have breakfast, and go to work by 8. This is my routine from Monday to Saturday.
I don’t like to sit around and do nothing. Just the thought of it is unbearable. I remember, 8 years ago, I climbed the Great Wall of China. My children stayed in the car then, they said it was too cold. And it was cold, about -10 °C. But I wanted to climb it and see the view. I still remember the scenery and the big lunch after that. Did you know that Peking duck tastes nicer when you’re cold?
I don’t think I can ever sit still. That’s what I told the doctor for my license renewal. Last year, for the first time in 20 years, he didn’t want to renew my license. So I offered to drive him around for a while. I got my license renewed that day.
My grandchildren tell me I drive too fast. I still get speeding tickets these days! But I’m just following my own pace. After all, I’m only 96 years young.
