Friday Funny – Being 80


Will I live to see 80?

Here’s something to think about.

 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. (I just turned sixty-five).

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. ‘I’m not doing drugs, either!’

Then he asked, ‘Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued Ribs?

‘I said, ‘Not much… 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 a lots of sex?’

‘No,’ I said…

He looked at me and said,.. ‘Then, why do you even give a shit?

  1. Actual converstaion with my doc about being diabetic, he said “I just want to help you control your dabetes well enough so you live long enough to get hit by a bus or die of cancer or something.”
    Yes, I love my doc.

    • Mine has the potential, but I’ve only been seeing him for 6 months. Hard to find a doctor in Canada, took me 8 years, they all move to the USA. More freedom to practise and earn. I digress though. He has a sense of humour and is showing it ore each time I have an appointment,
