Live to be 80?            Getting Old(er)   /   Back Home

Thanks to Steve Miller for sending this one!

I recently 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 ****?"
