Will I Live To See 80 ?

Will I Live to see 80?

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 61.)

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 spirits 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 shit

      No one in their right mind would want to live to that age unless they were millionaires with no worries
      Imagine paying taxes all those years , to me old age should not be compulsory.

      I thought it was rather funny too mate
      and its so bloody true
      My doctor is worried about my drinking
      and he asked me the other day how my drinking was going
      I said it would go a lot better if he gave me a bloody prescription for the stuff
      Cheers
