(Saturday morning) “Aaugh! The internet is down!! Panic! PANIC!!!”

Perhaps like “Dawn of the Living Dead”, young people especially would wander zombie-ish … thumbs spontaneously twitching by long-acquired habit, desperate to text.

I couldn’t help but laugh recently when a priest friend of mine—a bit of a comic—after frantically searching for, and finally finding, his
