A little perspective, perhaps? [Oct. 27th, 2006|08:05 pm]
[Current Mood |amusedamused]

From my boss:

I recently went to a new 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 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, "No, my other 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. "I don't do any of those things." He looked at me and said,

"Then why do you give a shit?"

so frikken true...

hey there, long time no see...
well, thats a strange statement considering we ate and complained that laser tag was closed... and that sums up a friendship!

i notice the christpher eccleston avatar, and wondered if you had seen the othello he did for the BBC. modern language and situation, but LOTS of him talking to the camera. a must for those who drool over the previous Doctor..........
