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

'Oh no,' I replied.  'I'm not doing drugs, either!'

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,
boating, sailing, hiking, or bicycling?'

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

He asked, 'Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have lots of

No,' I said . . .

He looked at me and said, . . .  'Then, why do you even give
