Will you live to see 80?
I recently picked a new primary care doctor ..young guy, starting out trying to pay all of his medical school debt.
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'll live to be 80?'
He asked, 'Do you drink beer or wine?'
'Once in a great while,' I replied. 'I not a druggie, either!'
Then he asked, 'Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs ?
'I said, 'Not much because my former doctor said that all red meat is very unhealthy!'
'Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, sailing, hiking, or bicycling?'
'No, I don't golf but I go out on my boat once in a while' I said.
He asked, 'Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of wild and kinky sex?'
'No,' I said.
He looked at me and said,... 'Then, why do you even give a shit?'
