  • My name's Crystal.

  • My name is Alice.

  • I'm glad to meet you. Nice to meet you Alice.

  • What are we here to talk about?

  • Well I think it might be how old I am.

  • Do you know how old I am?

  • No.

  • I'm in my 101st year.

  • Did you ever know anybody else that old?

  • No.

  • I don't even know anybody else that old.

  • Did you think you would live this long?

  • No, nobody in my family ever lived this long.

  • My grandmother lived the longest and she was only 83 years old.

  • You broke the family live-long record.

  • I have the record.

  • How did you live so long?

  • I keep very busy.

  • I write books and I exercise and I eat good food.

  • I even play Scrabble.

  • Do you know how to play Scrabble?

  • No?

  • No. You should ask somebody to play Scrabble.

  • It's lots of fun.

  • Were you around when color wasn't created?

  • Yes (chuckles).

  • I was alive when there were no television, no telephones.

  • My grandparents didn't even have electricity.

  • Wow, that must have been a long time ago.

  • It was a long, long time ago.

  • What would you do for fun?

  • I had dolls and blocks, but I really liked boys' things.

  • I liked marbles and tops and I thought boys were much luckier than girls.

  • Girls had to wear skirts.

  • We couldn't wear pants at all.

  • That's messed up.

  • Yeah, it was very messed up.

  • What else was hard because that you were a girl?

  • Well, I wanted to get a job teaching in a college and I found out there was an opening for a job teaching biology, so I called the head of the department and you know what he said to me?

  • What?

  • We don't want a woman, and I said well, could I come over and talk for five minutes, so he said well, all right, and I went over and I was so good he said okay, we'll hire you to be a teacher.

  • The first part was not so nice.

  • Right, and I taught at Santa Monica College for 20 years.

  • Sometimes I had 90 kids in my class.

  • 90?

  • 90.

  • If you had 11 more then it would be your age.

  • What is the most amazing thing that happened in your life?

  • Probably when airplanes were first invented, I had an airplane ride from England to France.

  • The pilot and my grandfather sat up front and my grandmother and I sat in the back seat and it was open.

  • The wind was blowing.

  • It was one of the first airplanes in the world.

  • That's super cool.

  • Isn't it?

  • My little brother was very jealous and he said, oh, you were so lucky, so I found out we could get an airplane ride in Philadelphia.

  • We were supposed to go to the movies and instead I took him to the field where there was a little airplane.

  • We paid $1.50 a piece.

  • We got on the airplane.

  • I bet he was very happy.

  • Yes.

  • I really like when it goes up, when this weird feeling comes when you go up and when you land.

  • I really like it.

  • Most people don't but I love it.

  • Can you imagine being in an open airplane with the wind on your hair?

  • I like that.

  • Are you afraid of dying?

  • No, I'm not afraid of dying.

  • I feel very healthy and happy.

  • My doctor said maybe you'll just die in your sleep,

  • so I'm not afraid 'cause I have a good life.

  • Do you have any advice for me?

  • Surely.

  • Study hard.

  • Aim for something good, and enjoy life and that will be your salvation.

  • You'll live to be smart and wonderful and have a great life.

  • Thank you.

  • You're welcome.

What is the most amazing thing that happened in your life?
