Olive Explains Her Love For Beer

Olive also explained why exactly she was so desperate to get more beer.

“I was on my last 12 cans, I have a beer every night, you know what, beer has vitamins in it, it’s good for you, as long as you don’t overdo it.”

Can’t argue with that! 

Olive’s explanation only garnered more positive comments from internet users.

“Oh okay a 93-year-old does it and it’s funny and heartwarming but when I do it I’m an alcoholic,” one person commented.

In difficult times like these, when everything seems so bleak and uncertain, it’s important to find things to smile and laugh about.

God bless Olive for putting a smile on all of our faces today, and we hope she doesn’t run out of beer again anytime soon!
