Here's a joke I have just seen that seems to be relevant to my last post.

I recently saw a new G.P. at my local surgery for my usual 6 month check.  He said I was doing 'fairly well' for my age.  A little concerned about 'fairly well', I couldn't resist asking him, 'Then do you think I'll live to be 80?' 
He asked, 'Do you smoke, and drink beer, wine or spirits to excess? 
'No,' I replied. 'And I don't do drugs, either!' 
Then he asked, 'Do you eat rare steaks, fatty foods, lots of cheese, or barbecued ribs? 
I said, 'Not much - your predecessor said that all of those things are very unhealthy!' 
'Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like sunbathing, playing golf, sailing, hiking, or cycling?' 
'No, I don't,' I said. 
He asked, 'Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have lots of sex?' 
'No,' I said... 
He looked at me and said, 'Then, WTF do you want to live to be 80?'


  1. I most definately intend to live to 80 and beyond!! LOL.

    1. I shan't ask which of those pleasures gives you motivation, Mitch.
