Although we all wonder what it is like to get old, no one can ever really know until they get there.

Former English teacher, 91-year-old Flossie Lewis, has done a great job as explaining it though.

In this video from the PBS web series, Brief But Spectacular, Flossie shares her thoughts on aging.
