Cut and Paste

I love it when good stuff comes to my in box and I don’t have to think about writing, I just cut and paste. This is one of those goodies.

He has a valid point

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 seventy-one).

A little concerned about that comment, I couldn’t resist asking him, ‘Do you think I’ll live to be 85?’

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 lots of sex?’

‘No,’ I said.

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

And now I’ll finish my bourbon on the rocks!
