: Ok! She looked dead. She was bitten by a rattler and she just lay there, slack-jawed with her eyes all glazed over. We thought she was dead. OK, we'd been drinking a bit and we though a Viking funeral would be good - not particularly appropriate, but it was a chilly night (and we had wieners). We pushed, shoved and dragged the wattle hut to the shore, put her in it, lit the thing and set it adrift. To make a long story short, she is singed around the edges and mad as hell. If I were you I would give her a wide berth for a while. I know I will - that woman is not to be triffled with when she is mad, snake-bit and singed around the edges.
I'm so glad yer still alive! What would happen to poor old Jeroboam if ye met yer Maker?
Now, I got a real good potion fer snakebite: an infusion of bog asphodel. I'll be right over to fetch it to ye. Mebbe that Miz Sassy woman'd bring along some o' her good rum. Thass good fer snakebite and whatever else ails ye.
Yer faithful servant,
