Don't keep doctor away

I attended a medical seminar recently. It was truly a learning experience. After a series of customary speeches, discussion and papers was the lunch.

Many in the gathering were desperately waiting for this hour. This was the only time slated wherein participants had an opportunity to know about each other a bit

Since the ambiance was so medical-medical (if the term be so!!) that my language was visibly influenced by it.

I got talking to a fellow participant and somewhere amidst the conversation I said, "an apple a day, keeps the doctor away."

A very neatly dressed gentleman raised his eyebrows and said "I don't want to keep the doctor away."

Before I or anyone else could figure out the reason behind this statement. The gentleman himself burst out laughing and said: "Doctor is my wife."
