We hope that we can be HALF as awesome as this woman when we're her age!
Ch-ch-check out 81-year-old Laverne Everett's interview with Matt Lauer on The Today Show yesterday, who became an internet sensation when she was filmed celebrating her 80th birthday by going sky-diving - and nearly DIED when her harness slipped out of her shoulder and she spent the majority of her free-fall hanging from her knees below the instructor (above)!
Obviously, the video of the clip has gone viral, but what we think is so admirable about this woman is how cool, collected, and logical she is about the terrifying ordeal!
It's probably what kept her alive! Imagine how much more chaotic it would have been if she had freaked out?
And NOW she wants to ride in a race car?! Because "knitting is boring!"
LOLz! We are in LOVE!
Somebody give this woman a reality show! Please!
