    106-Year-Old Summoned to Start School [Eek!]

    THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

    OSLO, Norway -- Ingeborg Bertea Thuen was delighted when local authorities offered her free bus rides to the school she's supposed to attend as a first-grader this fall.

    The last time Thuen started school, in 1903, she had to walk an hour each way.

    "That's great," the 106-year-old told the Oslo newspaper Dagsavisen Friday about the free ride. "It's quite a way to walk."

    She was born in 1897, but computers in Os township, near the west coast city of Bergen, misread the '97' in her birth date as 1997. That would have made her 6 years old, and the township sent her a letter summoning her to start school.

    The letter also encouraged the centenarian's parents to list the children she would like to have in her class.

    Thuen, who gets around with the help of a walker, reckons she may do better than her first-time peers.

    "Since I can already read, maybe I should skip a couple grades," she joked.
    I'll post, You argue.
