Obviously, Elner Shimfissle CAN wait to get to heaven since when the octogenarian falls out of a fig tree and is declared dead, she recovers hours later in the hospital. While in the hospital, Elner makes a visit to heaven, which seems to be managed by her neighbor Dorothy (known to fans of Flagg's novel STANDING IN THE RAINBOW). Meanwhile, in Cassandra Campbell's slight Southern accent, friends and family recall what a blessing Elner has been to them all. The townsfolk have already made their casseroles, ordered flowers, cleaned out Elner's house, and written her obituary by the time the news hits home that she is alive and kicking.
