Things I did not know about Sir Edmund Hillary:
- He was still alive.
- He was only 88 when he died.
- Which means when he became the first person to reach the top of Everest, he was just a year older than I am now. Better get cracking.
- He once won an honor from Queen Elizabeth known as the Order of the Garter. Oh Liz, you saucy thing!
May he rest in peace.
