In the past, my girlfriends have called me a grandma. I don’t party often, I love to cook and bake, and I’m usually in bed before midnight with a good book and a cup of tea. 24 going on 90?
But now apparently I can’t even call myself ‘grandma,’ because this lady from Pennsylvania is infinitely more badass than I’ll ever be.
For her 94th birthday, Eila Campbell went skydiving. That’s right, to celebrate advancing to an age only seen by the likes of Dumbledore, Moses, and my great-uncle Isaac, Eila decided that she’d jump out of a plane at 10,000 ft. Since she said she might not “make it for another year,” she did something that has terrified some people to death. Clad in all-pink, she went with her granddaughter and great-granddaughter. Campbell described the experience as “kind of a wow” and says she’d definitely go again. I wish we had this momentous occasion on video, because I’m sure it was as awesome as it sounds.
The most badass thing I’ve ever done was run topless through Joshua Tree National Park. You win, Eila.
