Will I Live to see 80?

Here's something to think about.

I recently picked 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 62.)

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 or wine?'
'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, sailing, hiking, or bicycling?'
'No, I don't,' I said.
He asked, 'Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?'
'No,' I said.

He looked at me and said,

'Then, why do you even give a sh*t?'

Yes. Since you've made it to 62, the chances are you'll make it to 80.

Since women live longer, to increase your chances, you could have a sex change operation.

Gene, please don't encourage Aage like that! Could you imagine him with PMS!? I don't know if we could handle him while he/she went thru the "change" either!
Think about it!

Ha! That was a good chuckle, Aage! I'm turning the big five-oh this week & am deeply depressed! Already on cholesterol lowering meds, but love all the things your doc. says are bad. I think I'll live well & live short! Thanks for the laugh!

You're depressed? Why, both you and your Airstream are twelve years younger than me and mine! What do you have to complain about!?
