    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?"

    He asked, "Do you smoke tobacco or drink beer?"

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

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

    I said, "No, my other Doctor said that all red meat is very unhealthy, but I do eat a lot of fish!"

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

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

    He asked, "Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of girlfriends?"

    "No," I said. "I don't do any of those things."

    He looked at me, shook his head, and said, "Then why do you care if you live to be 80?
