Dr. Pepper: The Doctor Of Choice For A 104-Year-Old Woman [+video]

d pepperA Fort Worth woman is celebrating her 104th year of life. “Well at 103 I didn’t think I’d make it, but I’m still perking along.”

At 104 years old, Elizabeth Sullivan says she doesn’t need the advice of real doctors. So she keeps another doctor close by.

“People try to give me coffee for breakfast. Well, I’d rather have a Dr. Pepper.” Sullivan fell in love with the soft drink’s trademark “23 flavors” when she was in her 60’s. “I started drinking them about 40 years ago. Three a day.

Every doctor that sees me says they’ll kill you, but they die and I don’t. So there must be a mistake somewhere.”
For her birthday she got a very big surprise. A beautiful cake shaped like what else, Dr. Pepper.

Commenting on her special day she said, “When you live to be 104 and still can talk to nice people, you deserve some Dr. Pepper, but I never expected this.” (Read more from “Dr. Pepper: The Doctor Of Choice For A 104-Year-Old Woman [+video]” HERE)
