May We All Grow Up To Be 106-Year-Old Dancing Queen Virginia McLaurin
Hello, friends! Are you having a bit of a rough Monday? Let 106-year-old Virginia McLaurin fix that for you.
Correction: 106-year old dancing queen Virginia McLaurin.
Actually, no—that still doesn’t convey the fabulousness of this grand lady. Let’s go with: 106-year-old PRESIDENTIAL DANCE PARTNER and TOTAL ROCKSTAR Virginia McLaurin.
Over the weekend, the impossibly cool centenarian—she was born in 1909!—came to the White House for a meet-and-greet with Barack and Michelle Obama, arranged as part of Black History Month celebrations. While the Obamas are pretty impressive dancers themselves, they could hardly keep pace with McLaurin, who turned the visit—a longtime dream of hers—into a bona fide dance party.

“What’s the secret to still dancing at 106?” the President asked McLaurin. Her answer: “Just keep movin’!”
It’s the best, happiest, wonderfulest thing you’ll see all week. Case of the Mondays: CLOSED.
