Will I live to be 80?

A very nice lady recently picked a new primary care physician. After two visits and exhaustive lab tests, he said that she was doing “fairly well” for her age.

A little concerned about that comment, she couldn’t resist asking him, “Do you think I’ll live to be 80?”

He asked, “Do you smoke tobacco or drink beer &wine?”

“Oh no,” she replied. “I’m not doing either.”

Then he asked, “Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?”

She said, “No, my other 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,” she said.

He asked, “Do you gamble, drive fast cars or have a lot of sex?”

“No,” she said. “I don’t do any of those things.”

Then he looked at her and said, “Then why do you give a shit if you’ll live to be 80?”
