Will I live to see 80?

This was sent to me by one of the "Usual Suspects" and explains a lot about my life here @MySideOfTheBar

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 am well past sixty-five). A little concerned about that 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 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.

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

 'No,' I said...

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

Cheers
