Here is my response to today’s challenge:
While planning for her death, Sam couldn’t decide whether it was better to make the hole longer or shorter than the body.
He thought the knife would be sharp enough to keep the smell from being too bad. However, he couldn’t bring himself to disfigure her upper body. Instead of slitting her throat he gutted her, not realizing that would release the contents of her insides.
It was so hot he broke into a sweat while trying to drag her body into the grave.
Finally, in an exhausted state, Sam decided to quit, doing it himself. He called animal control to haul the body of his beautiful pet llama away, while he stood there with tears in his eyes.
Moral: It is not always best to do things yourself.
