Make a LIFE, not a living

Story of an old man……

“I recently picked a new doctor. After two visits and exhaustive Lab tests, he said I was doing ‘fairly well’ for my age (60).

A little concerned about his comment, I couldn’t resist asking him, ‘Do you think I’ll live to be 80?’

He asked me, ‘Do you smoke tobacco, or drink beer or wine?’ ‘Oh no,’ I replied. ‘And I’m not doing any drugs, either!’

Then he asked, ‘Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?

‘Not much’ I replied. ‘My former doctor said that red meat is unhealthy!’

‘Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, sailing, hiking, or bicycling?’

‘No, I avoid the sun as much as possible,’ I replied.

He asked, ‘Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?’ ‘No,’ I replied. ‘I’m being extremely careful.’

He looked at me and asked, ‘Then why do you even give a damn?’ “
