The Days of Abundant Internet

In those days our gutters overflowed with Internet. Sometimes it would
Internet for days and our circle would become one enormous puddle of
Internet. When that happened all we could do was stay home and watch
the Internet raging from our windows. Flotsam swirled around the circle
like European ships circumnavigating the Earth. Kids could get swept away
in all that Internet; their school pictures ended up on milk cartons. Weird
how they were always grinning. These days we have much less Internet,
but occasionally a storm bowls over us and knocks out the power. When
it Internets, it pours.
