Living Till Ninety

              This old dude finally got a new primary care physician. After exhaustive tests, the told him he was doing ‘fairly well’ for his age. A little concerned about that comment, he couldn’t resist asking, “Do you think I’ll live to be ninety?” 
              The doctor thought for a while then asked,
Doc: Do you use tobacco or drink alcoholic beverages? 
Dude: Oh no, I’ve never done those things.
Doc: Do you eat things like big steaks and barbequed ribs, sausage etc.? 
Dude: Nope, I’ve heard that all ‘red meat’ is very unhealthy! 
Doc: Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or fool around with women? 
Dude: No, I’ve never done any of those things either. 
Doc: Then tell me, Sir, why would you want to live to be ninety?
