In the end

Filed under: Other people's stories — denisedayspencer @ 12:51 pm

A couple of days ago I was eating lunch at a table in our cafeteria with several people, including an older friend named Dan. Now Dan is usually good for a story or two, and on this day he did not disappoint.

He told us about his great-grandfather, who lived back in Civil War days. The old gent “had a long, snowy white beard that he always kept neatly trimmed,” Dan said. “Every day he would sip a fifth of whiskey. He didn’t drink it; he sipped it. Everybody always said that whiskey would kill him. And it did–at the age of 102.”
