Why, Old Lady, Why?
Why, exactly, did the old woman feel that she needed to swallow all of those other things?? Swallowing a fly isn't really that big of a deal. It would have dissolved in her stomach acids, and that would have been the end of it. Why she felt the need to intervene in such a dramatic way does not make sense. Could she not see where it was all going? I mean, she did do pretty good. She got as far as the horse before she died. That's a major accomplishment and should qualify her for some kind of an eating record. But, come on, did she really expect to be able to swallow a horse and live to tell about it? She must have been a bit senile. Maybe she should have been in a home, is all I'm saying. She probably shouldn't have been left on her own. There is a valuable lesson in here, I believe. If you have an elderly loved on who feels the need to swallow live animals whole, you might want to question their mental state and take appropriate measures to insure a tragedy of this scale never happens again. Sad. So sad.
