The Gift of Gratitude: Humor

00-2017RenFair-01583A“Will I Live To 80?”
I recently picked a new primary care physician. 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 80?”
He asked, “Do you smoke tobacco or drink beer or wine?” “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 other Doctor said that all red meat is very 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. “I don’t do any of those things.”
He looked at me and said, “Then why do you want to live to 80?”

 

Laugh and the world laughs with you, cry and you cry alone.
