No one wants to see a death coach.
Even to see the back of it, riding past your house, or leaving town is no great comfort, for the mere passing of the Death Coach is a sign of an impending death.

Most who hear the Death Coach approach scuttle themselves behind closed doors and latched windows.
But what can you do if you find yourself stranded outside?
On this week’s episode, Kitty shares tips on how to avoid the Death Coach and gives fair warning on what you might find if you dare to open the coach door and take a peek inside…
