This is another story I can't say I really understood. Unless it was supposed to be about two women (two Mrs.s) outside their comfort zone. I found the story a little gimmicky, but in Jackson's defense, she was probably writing about a dummy before they became the common creepy things they are in fiction and movies/TV now.
