“An Apple a day keeps the doctor away.” That’s what Margery’s mother had always said, so Margery figured it must be true.
So Margery ate an apple every single day. It didn’t do a very good job of keeping the doctor away, as Margery was a weak and sickly individual. She seemed to be seeing the doctor every other day for some ailment or another.
“I wish that this apple really could keep the doctor away,” mused Margery one day.
She got her wish. It was a poisoned apple.
Margery hasn’t been to the doctor since.
