My Recent Visit To The Doctor

Will I live to see 80?

I recently registered with a new primary care doctor.

After two visits and exhaustive lab tests, he said I was doing
‘fairly well’ for my age. (I just turned fifty-something.)

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 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 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.

He asked, ‘Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have
lots of sex?’

‘No,’ I said…

He looked at me and said,.. ‘Then, why do you even give a shit?

😯 Cheeky bugger 😯

    Being over 50 something myself, I can relate. Reminds me of the time I got a new doctor, a young attractive lady. She was telling me all the things that if I didn’t quit; I would die. After a few minutes of that, I looked down at her and said;
    ” I don’t know what they told you in medical school, but YOU”RE going to die too.” I wish I had a camera to share the look on her face. True Story
