A is for Anything Goes

The A-Z writing challenge is Absurdly Zonkers.  Writing a post every day (except on Sunday) using the alphabet is not for the faint of heart. So that’s why I’m absolutely doing it.

A – Haiku

It’s the first letter

the beginning not the end

“A” is not the last

A Saying

An apple a day doesn’t keep the doctor away

by Michael Pomranz

“Remember when you were a little kid and Mom used to tell you, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away?” And then remember when you became a snotty teenager and you told Mom she was an idiot? Well, turns out Mom was wrong, and you were right!”

“A team of researchers recently set out to see if the old apple rhyme actually held any water. After looking at over 8,000 participants, their study, published in JAMA Internal Medicine, provided no statically significant proof that an apple a day actually leads to fewer doctor’s visits.

“What researchers did uncover, however, was that apple eaters were “marginally more successful at avoiding prescription medications” than non-apple eaters. “Evidence does not support that an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” the study’s authors concluded, “however, the small fraction of US adults who eat an apple a day do appear to use fewer prescription medications.” Hopefully, Republicans are paying attention: Encouraging people to eat more apples might be a great Obamacare replacement.”

Ahhhhhhhhh.  “A down and “B” to go . . .

  1. Delightful, Judy. I don’t know how anyone has the time for this–a post a day! Well, in your case, you probably feel like you’re swimming in free time. Oh what a glorious feeling!


    • Jacqui,
      The kind of posts that I do are NOT the thorough, informative and “useful” kind of posts you write for your blogs! Now that I’m retired I have time but no money to travel, go to theatre etc so my blog posts are my main amusement! On the one hand it’s a bit pathetic and on the other hand it’s fascinating to explore the world electronically.

      P.S. We’ll see what it takes to get to “Z”!!!!


  2. It was my grandmother who told me that. And, modern science or not, I still believe everything my grandmother ever said. Though I doubt I’d share all of her wisdom. LOL
