I recently picked a new primary care doctor. 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?'
He asked, 'Do you smoke tobacco, or drink beer, wine or hard liquor?'
'Oh no,' I replied.
'Do you take recreational drugs?'
'I'm not doing that, either!'
Then he asked, 'Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?'
'I said, 'Rarely... my former doctor said that all red meat is very unhealthy!'
'Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, boating, sailing, hiking, or bicycling?'
'No, I don't,' I said.
He asked, 'Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have abnormal sex?'
'No,' I replied...
He looked at me and said,..
'Then, why do you even give a Crap?
