My response:

P.S. This is this blog's two-hundredth post.

Too sad. . . perhaps if she cries directly onto the cement, it will slow the process and she can escape.

Your story is very sad, Dave. I can only hope that the lady dried her tears and used the shovel to break through the mortar before it hardened!

Have a great week. Cheers!
