100 years old and still a teacher, a joker, an inspiration

I've often said I have no interest in living to 100 since I'd pictured it as nothing but disability and dementia.  But I'm reconsidering after reading this wonderful report on how Up the Down Staircase author Bel Kaufman is doing at age 100. I loved the "I'm tired and thirsty" joke.
