A friend of mine also pointed out that I know nothing of IP addresses and they were right. But hopefully the point of the post got through despite that minor mistake. Actually, the point was to be amusing so if it made you smile, great.

Her loneliness curled in on her like she was a mimosa plant in a crowded room.
Note: Mimosa plants curl in on themselves when they are touched. They're pretty cool.
