With the marvels of modern day medicine the idea of reaching triple digits isn’t really so unrealistic, but if you do hit that number, what do you expect your life to be like? Will you have the energy to enjoy your remaining years or will you be too damn tired to even yell at children to get off your lawn?
Let’s take a look at Xiao Yuankai, who looks 70 but is actually 104 years old. Hailing from Guizhou province, Xiao lives with his children and grandchildren and doesn’t need anyone to really take care of him. Still active and healthy, Xiao works in the fields and sells his handpicked tea leaves at the local market, People’s Daily reports.
Perhaps Xiao could set up a club exclusively for triple digit folks, where they can all reminisce, hang out and be jealous of Xiao’s youthful looks. He could invite this centenarian couple, this 100-year-old artist and our favourite party-hat-wearing father of pinyin?
