Default Will I Live to See 80?

Here'* 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 51.)

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 or wine?'

'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, sailing, hiking, or bicycling?'

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

He asked, 'Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?'

'No,' I said.

He looked at me and said,... 'Then, why do you even give a ***t?'

I had 6 yes'* and I'm not ever going to turn any of those to no. I'm going to live life well and not worry about much else.

Old age is defined as 20 years from where your at today. Regardless of the present age. I'm hitting 56 in May and "all of the above". Here'* to 76! My only hope is to go quickly and before someone else has to take care of me.
