Seven Percent Younger

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on June 23, 2009



A couple of weeks ago, Chamblee54 recycled an email. It was a list of life lessons, written by a lady named Regina Britt. It was reported that she was 90 years old.

As it turns out, the chain email industry got that wrong. Regina Britt is 53. Mrs. Britt survived a bout with breast cancer, and is happy for the life she enjoys. She has a book coming out.

The chain email got a couple of other things wrong. The original list of 45 RFL was printed. In her nifty at fifty column, Mrs. Britt had fifty thoughts. Since PG cares about his reader(s), he has compared the two lists, and determined which five were not included. Maybe it is the email monger who is 90 years old, or living in North Ohio.

16. Life is too short for long pity parties. Get busy living, or get busy dying.

17. You can get through anything if you stay put in today.

18. A writer writes. If you want to be a writer, write.

38. Read the Psalms. They cover every human emotion.

48. If you don’t ask, you don’t get.

The email distributor did not think that what Mrs. Britt wrote was sufficient. The following postscript was added:
“Its estimated 93% won’t forward this. If you are one of the 7% who will, forward this with the title ‘7%’. I’m in the 7%. Remember that I will always share my spoon with you! Friends are the family that we choose for ourselves.”
PG suspects that Regina Britt is not a statistician. She tells the truth.

Thank you Capri, for leaving a comment at the Chamblee54 post. Capri gave the correct age for Regina Britt. Its not everyday you can take 37 years off a persons age.
