Sometimes you hear news of someone famous dying and it’s a surprise. Usually it’s because they died so young, but other times its because you’re surprised they weren’t already dead.

Betty White falls into that category for me. I really thought she was already gone. She had a huge couple of years around 2010 where she was on almost every TV show possible playing the little old lady who was too old to care about what she said. It was funny. For a little bit. But like all funny gimmicks it got stale and wasn’t funny anymore. Since then she’s pretty much disappeared of my radar. I guess that’s why I assumed she died. Whoops.

So I apologize to Betty White. Congratulations on making it to 95. Good luck getting to 96.
