Did I say ...
A seventy-year-old man went to a doctor for a check-up. The doctor told him, "You're in terrific shape. There's nothing wrong with you. Why, you might live forever; you have the body of a thirty-five-year-old. By the way, how old was your father when he died?"
The sixty-year-old responded, "Did I say he was dead?"
The doctor was surprised and asked, "How old is he? Is he very active?"
The seventy-year-old responded, "Well, he is eighty-nine years old and he still goes skiing three times a season and surfing at least three times a week during the summer."
The doctor couldn't believe it! So he said, "Well, how old was your grandfather when he died?"
The patient responded again, "Did I say he was dead?"
The doctor was astonished. "You mean to tell me you are seventy years old and both your father and your grandfather are still alive? Is your grandfather very active?"
The sixty-year-old said, "He still goes skiing at least once a season and surfing on the weekends during the summer. Not only that," said the patient, "my grandfather is 109 years old, and next week he is getting married again."
The doctor said, "At 109 years why on earth would your grandfather want to get married?"
The patient looked up at the doctor and said, "Did I say he wanted to?"
