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?'
