    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. <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    A little concerned about that comment, I couldn't resist asking him, ‘Do you think I'll live to be 80?' <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    He asked, 'Do you smoke tobacco, or drink beer or wine?' <o:p></o:p>
    'Oh no,' I replied, 'I'm not doing drugs, either!' <o:p></o:p>

    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!' <o:p></o:p>

    <o:p> </o:p>
    'Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, sailing, camping, hiking, or bicycling?' <o:p></o:p>
    'No, I don't,' I said. <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    He asked, 'Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?'
    'No,' I said. <o:p></o:p>

    <o:p> </o:p>
    He looked at me and said... 'Then, why do you even give a sh**? <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
