Will I Live To Be 80?

- 15 May 2012, 07:05

Here’s something to think about.


I recently picked a new primary care doctor. After two visits and exhaustive Lab tests, he said I was doing ‘fairly well’ for my age. (I just turned SIXTY NINE).


A little concerned about that comment, I couldn’t resist asking him, ‘Do you think I’ll live to be 80?’


He asked, ‘Do you smoke tobacco, or drink beer, wine or hard liquor?’


‘Oh no,’ I replied. ‘I’m not doing drugs, either!’


Then he asked, ‘Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?’


‘I said, ‘Not much… my former doctor said that all red meat is very unhealthy!’


‘Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, boating, sailing, hiking, or bicycling?’


‘No, I don’t,’ I said.


He asked, ‘Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lots of sex?’


‘No,’ I said…He looked at me and said,.. ‘Then, why do you even give a shit?’
