picked a new primary care doctor. After
two visits and exhaustive lab tests, she
said I was doing 'fairly well' for my age.
(I just turned sixty-something.) A little
concerned about her comment, I couldn't
resist asking her, 'Do you think I'll live
to be 80?'
She asked, 'Do you smoke tobacco, or drink beer, wine or hard liquor? 'Oh no,' I replied. 'I'm not doing drugs, either!'
Then she asked, 'Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs? I said, 'Not much... my last 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?' I said, 'No.'
She asked, 'Do you gamble, drive fast
cars, or have lots of sex?'
'No,' I said...
She looked at me and said, "Then, why do you even give a ****?"
