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.


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, "No, 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. "I don't do any of those things."


He looked at me and said, "Then, why do you give a shit?"
