Great Moments in Medicine............

I recently picked a new Doctor.
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 90?"
He asked, "Well, do you smoke cigars or drink a lot of wine?"
"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 red meat is very unhealthy!"
"Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, sailing, hiking, or fishing?"
No, I don't," I said.
He asked, "Do you gamble, ride fast bikes, 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 do you give a shit if you live to be 90?"
