Subject: Will I Turn 80?

I recently turned 62 and had to choose a new primary care physician
for my Medicare program.
After two visits and exhaustive lab tests, he said I was doing 'fairly
well' for my age.

A little concerned about that comment, I couldn't resist asking him
'Do you think I will live to be 80?'
He asked: Do you smoke tobacco or drink alcoholic beverages?'

'Oh no,' I replied. 'I don't do drugs, either.'

'Do you have many friends and entertain frequently?'

'I said, 'No, I usually stay home and keep to myself'.

'Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?'

I said, 'No, my other doctor said that all red meat is unhealthy!'

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

'No, I don't,' I said.

'Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?'

'No,' I said. 'I don't do any of those things.'

He looked at me and said, 'Then why do you give a shit?
