Seniors jokes: "Doctor, will I live to 80?"...

I RECENTLY picked a new primary care physician.

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'll live to be 80?".

My physician asked: "Do you smoke tobacco or drink beer or wine?"

"Oh no," I replied. "I'm not doing drugs either."

Then he asked: "Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?"

"No," I said. "My other doctor said that all red meat is very unhealthy."

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

"No, I don't," I replied.

My physician asked: "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 want to live to 80."
