Meet Mary Tony.
You’ve never heard of her, but there are woman like her all over the world. She’s elderly, but still alive.
A film crew called Voyager visited Tony in her apartment to document what the life of a 98-year-old senior citizen is like. She doesn’t have significant interaction with her immediate family and for the most part is all alone.
“I don’t mind. What am I going to do? Where could I go? I am by myself,” Tony responds when the crew asks if she likes her living situation. Her biggest struggle is how she can pass the time, without being completely bored.
“You know what I do? Don’t laugh,” Tony explains, “I get junk mail, I strip it. And after I strip it I cut it up small, put it in a bag and put it for garbage.” She then chuckles before admitting, “I have to do something; otherwise I’d go nuts.” Someone really needs to introduce her to Damn.com and Facebook.
