The Health Checkup

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 90?" He asked, 

"Well, do you smoke tobacco or drink beer?" 

"Oh no," I replied, "I've never done either." 

Then he asked, "Do you eat rib-eye steaks and bar-b-qued ribs? 

I said, "No, I've heard that all "red meat" is very unhealthful!" 

"Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf?" he asked. 

"No, I don't," I said. 

He said, "Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or fool around with sexy people?" 

"No," I said, "I don't do any of those things." 

He looked at me and said, "Then why in hell do you want to live to be 90?"
