Think it Might be Time to Change Our Life Style?

Will I Live to see 80?

Here's something to think about.

I 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 70.)
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, '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, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?'
'No,' I said.
He looked at me and said,... 'Then, why do you even give a shit?

Oh dear! I must live a very unexciting life too.I wonder why I don't know how much I'm missing. Love your music. If you think about I would like to know the title -- only if you have time.

How funny...
Thanks sooooo much for this smile in my face, I was so tired after lots of homework here and now my heart is full of great energies!
Once I thought I was "old" to learn a new language, and then life give me opportunities that I could not say NO.It's not an easy way but I think we need to face our fears and embrace the WONDERFUL AND BLESSED LIFE with love and positivism.
Have a great day dear Sylvia,

Sometimes He works in mysterious inexplicable ways... know plenty of people who drink, smoke and indulge yet live to ripe old ages of 80, 90+ and those who do all the "right things" but drop dead at 40...

Irene said...

Ha ha ha! Nice doctor. Stick with him, I'd say!

Nessa said...

Yeah, exactly. What's the point if you never have any fun.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
