Day Brightener – Sometimes The Answer Is Too Logical

Female DoctorI recently picked a new primary care doctor.  After 2 visits and exhaustive lab tests, she said I was doing fairly well for my age.  (I’m past 75). 

A little concerned about that comment, I couldn’t resist asking her: “Do you think I’ll live to be 85?”

She asked:  “Do you smoke tobacco, or drink beer, wine or hard liquor?”

“Oh no,”  I replied. “I don’t do any drugs, either!”

Then she 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, boating, sailing, hiking, or bicycling?”

“No, I don’t”, I said.

She asked:  “Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?”

“No”, I said.

She looked at me and said:  “Then, why do you even give a shit?”
