So you want to live up to 80

*TO ALL MY RETIRED E-FRENZS AND THOSE ABOUT TO RETIRE.*

LIVING TO 80

I recently turned 55 and had to choose a new primary care physician for my Medicare program. 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 will live to be 80?”

He asked: *Do you smoke tobacco or drink alcoholic* beverages?”

“Oh no,” I replied. “I *don’t do drugs*, either.”

“Do you have* many friends and entertain frequently*?”

“I said, “No, I usually stay home and keep to myself”.

“Do you *eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs*?”

I said, “No, my other doctor said that all red meat is unhealthy!”

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

“No, I don’t,” I said.

“Do you *gamble like playing Mah Jong , 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 would you want to live to 80?”
