Old Feller Asks If He Would Live to see 80?

Bit of humour sent to me a bit ago.

An old feller 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 65.)

‘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, sailing, hiking, or bicycling?’
‘No, I don’t,’ I said.
He asked, ‘Do you gamble or drive fast cars.
‘No,’ I said.
He looked at me and said,… ‘Then, why do you even give a dam?
