Would you like to live to age 85?

After a visit to her doctor, a 60-year-old woman was told by the physician that she was doing "quite well" for her age. A little concerned about that comment, she couldn't resist asking, "Do you think I'll live to be 85?"

He asked, "Do you smoke tobacco, or drink beer, wine or hard drink?"

"Oh, not much drinking these days and I don't smoke, and I don't do drugs either."

Then he asked, "Do you eat red meat, fatty roasts and barbecued ribs?"

"Not much, because I know that all red meat is very unhealthy."

"Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, boating, sailing, surfing, hiking, or bicycling?"

"No, I don't," she said.

He asked, "Do you gamble, drive fast cars or spread gossip with your friends?"

Extremely proud with herself, she said, "No."

The doctor then looked at her and said, "Then, why the fuck do you want to live to 85?"
