Mary was waiting for her husband by the stairs knowing to find out that her husband had cheated on her. It occurred to her that perhaps he hadn't even spoken, that she herself had imagined the whole thing.

do you have any idea where the evidence could be
Mary simply walked up behind him and without any pause, she swung the big frozen leg of lamb high in the air and brought it down as hard as she could on the back of his head. she stood for a while blinking at the body, still holding the ridiculous piece of meat tight with both hands.
