    I recently picked a new primary care physician. After two visits and

    exhaustive lab test, 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 80?"

    He asked, "well, do you smoke tobacco or drink beer or wine?" "Oh no", I

    replied. "I've never done either."

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

    I heard that all red meat is very unhealthy."

    "Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf / sailing /

    ballooning / motorcycling / rock climbing?" "No I don't", I said.

    He said, "Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or sexually fool around?" "No", I

    said. "I have never done any of those things."

    He looked at me and said, "Then why do you care if you live to be 80?"

    Reminds me of one of Redd Foxx's old comedy sets.

    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Redd Foxx:
    I smoke. Lot of ya'll didn't know that. I been smoking 44 years. I don't have cancer. I got something that will eat it up.

    I drink, too. All y'all knew that.

    Some people here tonight probably don't smoke or drink. I know some people that don't have any salt, no pork, no meat, none of that good stuff. They don't eat any of it because they want to live.

    I tell those people "You're gonna feel like a damn fool lying in that hospital bed dying from nothin'." <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
    Dr. Strangeweb, or how I learned how to stop worrying about SERPS and love the WOM.
