Once Mr. Pratt went to see a doctor. The doctor named Mr. Cort examined him, listened to his lungs and heart, felt his pulse and blood pressure, took his temperature and said that medicine wouldn't help the old gentleman. The doctor asked him to go to a quiet country place for a month and to have a rest. "Your illness is not serious, so don't worry!" continued the doctor. "Go to bed early, drink milk, walk a lot, have just one cigar a day and you will recover pretty soon." Mr. Pratt nodded and said: "Thank you very much, Doctor. I shall do everything you say."
A month later the same gentleman came to see the doctor again. "How are you?" asked the doctor. "I am very glad to see you. You look much better." "Oh, Doctor," said the gentleman, "I feel quite all right now. I had a good rest. I went to bed early, I drank a lot of milk, I walked a lot. Your advice certainly helped me. But you told me to smoke one cigar a day, and that one cigar a day almost killed me at first. It's not a joke to start smoking at my age."
