Will I Live to see 80? Here's something to think about. I recently picked a new primary care doctor. Aftertwo visits and exhaustive lab tests, he said I was doing'fairly well' for my age. (I just turned sixty-something.) A little concerned about that comment, I couldn'tresist asking him, 'Do you think I'll live to be 80?' He asked, 'Do you smoke tobacco, or drink beer, wine or hard liquor? 'Oh no,' I replied. 'I'm not doing drugs, either!' Then he asked, 'Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs? I said, 'Not much... my former doctor said thatall red meat is very unhealthy!' 'Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playinggolf, boating, sailing, hiking, or bicycling?' 'No, I don't,' I said. He asked, 'Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or havelots of sex?' 'No,' I said... He looked at me and said,.. 'Then, why do you even give a shit?
Let's face it doctors are always party poopers.
A man goes to the doctor for a check-up and the doctor says: "I've got some bad news. From now on, no more booze, women or smoking. Also you'll have to start exercising a lot more." The crestfallen man asks: "Does that mean I'll live longer?" The doctor replies: "No, but it will at least seem like it."
