Will I Live to See 80?

After exhaustive lab tests, the doctor said Angie was doing “fairly well” for her age.

A little concerned about that comment, she couldn’t resist asking him, “Do you think I’ll live to see 80?”

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

“Oh no,” Angie replied. “I’m not doing any drugs, either!”

Then he asked, “Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?”

Angie replied, “Not much… my former doctor said that all red meat is very unhealthy!”

“Well, do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, boating, sailing, hiking, or perhaps bicycling?”

“No, I don’t,” she said.

He asked, “Do you gamble, drive motorcycles or fast cars, or have lots of sex?”

“No!” Angie said in an exasperated tone.

He looked at her and said, “Then, why do you give a shit?”
