While yesterday was actually my grandfather Alvar’s birthday, we celebrated it on Easter Sunday. This man is 93 years old, people. When he asks for strawberry cake, that is exactly what he gets.

I am not in Topeka often these days, so I took my chance to sit down and rap with the man. We mostly discussed Sweden and clip on ties. Alvar is 100% Sverige, while I am a paltry 25%.

All I’m going to say is that Alvar makes living in your 90’s look easy. The man has longevity on lock.
