Will I Live to Be 80?


After two visits to my doctor and exhaustive lab tests, she said I was doing "fairly well" for my age. A little concerned about that comment, I couldn't resist asking her "Do you think I'll live to be 80?"

She asked,"Well, do you smoke tobacco or drink beer/wine?"

"Oh no," I replied. "I've never smoked and rarely drink.


Then she asked, "Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbequed ribs?"

I said "No, I've heard that all red meat is very unhealthy!"

"Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf/tennis, sailing/ballooning/rock climbing ?" she asked.

"No, I don't," I said.

She said, "Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or sexually fool around?"

"No," I said. "I've never done any of those things."

She looked at me and said, "Then why do you really care if you will live to be 80?"
