Yesterday I went to my primary physician for a long-overdue physical check up.
Doc: How are you, stranger?
Me: Well, mostly okay.
Doc: How are things at the church? Still pastoring in ________?
Me: Fine, and yes.
Doc: Have you scheduled a mammogram?
Me: Umm, no, but I'll call right away.
Doc: Have you been working out a few times a week?
Me: Umm, no, but I do have an exercise bike.
Doc: Are you eating several servings of fruit and vegetables a day and cutting down on red meat?
Me: Umm, yeah, sure. Well, sometimes.
Me (feeling sheepish): I had good intentions. Does that count?
Doc: (looking grumpy): Does it in YOUR business?
