After 21, birthdays are mostly just a bitter reminder that you're one step farther from youth, and one step closer to cataracts and oblivion. Until you hit 100, that is. After that, every day is a reminder that you have kick-ass genes, and you outlived all your exes.
For most folks who have lived a century, birthdays are no longer prime time for sake bombs and dance floor make-outs, but still, celebration is in order. And for Arizona's own Myrtis Jewel Painter (yes, that is her real name), there's no better way to ring in 106 than with a meal at Taco Bell. In fact, Painter is such a beloved regular customer, the good folks at her local Taco Bell in Phoenix dressed up the restaurant and threw her a birthday bash, where she enjoyed an enchilada and a taco as her birthday meal.
"I think Taco Bell is a good place to come to, I really do," Painter told local TV station, KPHO/KTVK-TV. Indeed, it is.
