464: An Apple A Day

“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.

  1. Right on… An apple a day might not keep the doctor away, but each sweet, crispy crunch could promote weight loss and support the body’s efforts to combat disease. That’s because apples are rich in fiber as well as phytonutrients and antioxidants.

  2. If the truth be known, Margery wasn’t particularly bright and that’s all she ate, every day. An apple. Personally, I’d like an apple pie a day.

  3. Yeah doctors are no use in poison apple recovery. Only ‘love’s first kiss’ works in that scenario. Not to be confused with ‘true love’s kiss’ which is the required treatment for spindle related mishaps.
