Will I live to be 90?

Submitted by Dennis Robb



I recently turned 65 and had to choose a new primary care physician for my Medicare program.

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 will live to be 90?"

He asked:  "Do you smoke tobacco or drink alcoholic beverages?"

"Oh no,"  I replied.  "I don't do drugs, either."

"Do you have many friends and entertain frequently?"

"I said,  "No, I usually stay home and keep to myself".

"Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?"

I said,  "No, my other doctor said that all red meat is unhealthy!"

"Do you spend a lot of time in the sun,  like playing golf,  sailing,  hiking,  or bicycling?"

"No,  I don't,"  I said.

"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 Dam?
