LONDON - A British woman who celebrated her 105th birthday this week said the secret to long life was celibacy, adding that she imagined sex was a "lot of hassle."
Clara Meadmore, who marked her birthday with a drop of wine at the Perran Bay nursing home in Cornwall, southwest England, also received a card from Queen Elizabeth II.
"People have asked me whether I am a homosexual and the answer is no," Meadmore said.
"I have just never been interested in sex.
"I imagine there is a lot of hassle involved and I have always been busy doing other things."
Born in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1903, Meadmore lived in Canada and New Zealand as a child before returning to Britain in her 20s to work as a secretary and housekeeper.
She served with the army in Egypt during World War II, and subsequently lived in London and New Zealand before retiring 40 years ago in Cornwall.
Hmmm, let’s just forgive the Lady…
---For she obviously doesn't know what she's talking about. :)
