When my uncle Ahab was little his family kept horses. They lived in a mountainous area. They would let the horses out during part of the year. One year, there was a bad storm coming so they had to go and collect the hourses so that none got lost. Ahab took his horse to look for the others but while he was out his horse got spooked and bucked him off. He hit his head and was put into a coma. Someone from his family found him. He was in the coma for days when one day he just woke up and the first words out of his mouth were, 'I'm hungry!'
