The Power of Citrus

When I was little, I read a pirate book, and afterwards, whenever I was the slightest bit sick, I was convinced I had scurvy.

I would find my mother and inform her, "I have scurvy again." She'd usually ignore me.

I'd try my father: "Daddy, I have scurvy." He'd give me an orange and win my heart anew.
