Will I Live to see 85? (something to think about)

I recently had to choose a new primary care doctor. After two visits and exhaustive lab tests, he said I was doing fairly well for my age. (I am 75).

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 a lot of sex?'
'No,' I said.........

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

That sort of ruins your joke. These things are actually good for your health.

Studies have shown that people who get regular sex live longer than those who don't, as a rule of course.

FC,

I've been thinking about how I can respond conversationally without coming across as a total dick.
