Seventy-two-year-old Edgar recently picked a new primary care physician. After two visits and exhaustive lab tests, the doctor said Edgar was doing "fairly well " for his age.
A little concerned about that comment, Edgar couldn't resist asking the doctor, "Do you think I'll live to be 80? "
The doctor asked, "Well, do you smoke or drink beer? "
"Oh no," Edgar replied, "I've never done either. "
Then the doctor asked, "Do you eat rib-eye steaks and bar-b-cued ribs? "
Edgar said, "No, I've heard that all red meat is very unhealthful! "
"Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf? " the doctor asked.
"No, I don't," Edgar replied.
Then the doctor asked, "Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or run around with women? "
Edgar said, "I don't do any of those things. "
The doctor looked at Edgar and said, "Then why the heck do you want to live to be 80? "
