Debby spends most of her time talking to her friend, Nancy Green, with a Telephone. Today she tells her friend every embarrassing detail about her Husband. To not get bored she walks throughout her house while still talking. When answering the door, her swinger friend has brought her flowers. What she doesn't realize is that the cable of the phone has wrapped itself around her neck. Forgetting to close the door, the Wind smashes it shut, causing the cable to be pulled hard and tighten around her neck. She later dies after the blood supply has been cut off for too long. Cause of Death: Choking and brain damage.
