Avast, Ye Scurvy Dogs!
I just finished a salad with my wife. I encouraged her to more of them and to work in plenty of fruit, to you know, prevent scurvy.
I have a strange fascination with scurvy, which sailors used to get because a lack of vitamin C. It makes your gums bleeds and saps energy.
The Royal Navy used to carry limes to combat the disease, which is why the English are sometimes known as limeys. I'm not making that up.
Does this blog make me look fat?
