The New Doctor

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 seventy-eight ).
A little concerned about that comment, I couldn't resist asking him, “Do you think I'll live to be 85?”
He looked at me and starting asking questions. “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 would you want to live to 85?”
