Health questions from the doctor

From a friend??? ??

I recently picked a new primary care doctor. After two visits and thorough lab tests, he said I was doing ???fairly well??? for my age (I recently turned 59.)

A little concerned about that comment, I couldn't resist asking him, ???Do you think I'll live to be 80????

My doctor asked me, ???Do you smoke??????

???No??? I answered.??

He asked, ???Do you drink beer, wine or hard liquor????

???Oh no,??? I replied.?? ???And I don???t do drugs, either!???

Next, he asked, ???Do you eat rich meats like rib-eye steaks, or barbecued ribs????

I said, ???Not often; my former doctor told me red meat is not very healthy.???

???Do you spend a lot of time getting sun exposure ??? for example, while playing??golf, sailing, hiking, or bicycling????

???No, I don???t,??? I said.

The doctor then asked, ???Do you gamble, or drive fast cars????

???No,??? I said.

???Have lots of sexual activity????

???Umm, no??????

My doctor looked at me and said, ???Then why do you even give a shit??????
