Gladys suffered anxiety attacks. Her friends suggested finding a mountain to climb. "The exercise and fresh air would be therapeutic." they said.  "All your problems will disappear." they said.

So Gladys took their advice and found the highest mountain in the region to scale. It took her two days to reach the summit. As she sat to rest,  she admired the magnificent vistas and her amazing accmplishment. Gladys felt as if a veil of darkness had lifted. It had been years since she felt that well. She was glad that she had taken the advice of her friends.

It was then that Gladys thought to herself, "did I turn off the stove?"
