This is the story of Elena, a Cordovan who reached 100 years of quarantine . With an excellent state, of lucidity and full energy, he contacted the media and told his secret.
Elena has three children, seven grandchildren, fourteen great-grandchildren and six great great-grandchildren. A whole battalion of relatives who take care of her . However, her birthday was in quarantine times, and those who do not live with her could not go to visit her. But anyway, they sent him a lot of love by different means and in different ways. It is that in times of COVID-19 there is no other than to reinvent ourselves and renew the ways of affection . Elena lives in Jorge Newbery neighborhood and celebrated her birthday without family visits.
Living 100 years, in these times, is a novelty. That is why different media asked grandmother to reveal her secret . She spent her 100th birthday with the relatives who live with her and with a unique and special company: the fernet with coca, like all good Cordobesa. He revealed what his secret is to live 100 years (and we expect many more). Are you giving yourself an idea what this is?
This woman, laughing, confessed that her secret to getting in perfect condition to a century of age is to have a fernecito as an aperitif. For her, it is the only key that is worth and to which she owes her longevity.
So, in addition to being many years, they are well lived years. Elena is an example of life, her picardy and sympathy characterize her. Above all, his predisposition to share moments. With the news of her 100th birthday, the media went looking for her and she kindly received them. So he told the entire audience his magic potion that brings the power of eternity: the fernet with coca .
“ Sometimes they prepare it and ask me if he's rich. I just try it, I don't take it,” he says to the media. “ Since I was a girl, my mom had that habit , when we lived in the country we sometimes ate too much. And my mom always had a habit of having Fernet Branca kept. He'd give us a little swallow. So that we could do digestion right. And that's where I had the taste.”
His mother was Italian, so the habit of drinking this pure black drink, and use it as a digestive. But Elena is Cordovan of pure strain. She lived in Mortaros, performing in different trades and with different businesses with her husband. And, with the passage of time, it was acquiring the habit of taking fernet with coca or “70/30”, as we say in La Docta .
But quiet, dear reader, be careful to get drunk taking Elena's birthday as an excuse. The old woman confessed that it is not to take a lot, just a little drink for taste. It only consumes it by sips and for digestive purposes . Knowing the Argentines (and the Cordobeses, above all), Elena's secret would become an everyday custom. But we wouldn't have just a little drink: we'd make the jar, straight! So, it's worth the warning.
Besides, it looks like the fernet worked as a vaccine . Since it went through various epidemics, malarias and historical events, without having any health problems. Elena says that while she lived the time of swine flu, avian flu and many other epidemics , she was never forced to take the care measures she takes now. He thinks this is a very particular case.
This woman celebrated her birthday in full quarantine, with the relatives who live with her and with all the safety and hygiene measures. He received the media so he could tell his story. So he cut the cake and took a coke fernetazo . And he celebrated with “affection of all children” , as he confesses to be a lover of creatures. That's why she is a great grandmother and has a good relationship with her grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
