365 Days Writing Prompt Challenge: Day 295

295. Apple a Day:

They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but when I saw this little guy, I wasn’t so sure. 

One of my students had given him to me (yes I know, I’ve already anthropomorphised it!) and I couldn’t help but think of that whole ‘apple for the teacher,’ saying. 

What does it mean exactly? 

If you combine the two sayings, does it mean that the student wants to ensure you’re well and able to teach them everyday? 

Who knows. 

All I know is that I cannot possibly bring myself to eat something so cute and so small. It would just feel wrong. 

I know this damn cold has been holding on for three weeks but still, I don’t think this size apple is enough to keep the doctor away.
