Will I live to be 90?

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. A little concerned about that comment, I couldn't resist asking
him,”Do you think I'll live to be 90?"

He asked, "Do you smoke tobacco, or drink alcohol?" "Oh no," I replied.
"I'm not doing drugs, either!"

Then he asked, "Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?" I said,
"No, my former 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.

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 crap?"
