In a bit of time after the first(?) big bang, hydrogen and oxygen atoms copulated and bore water, spreading a vapor trail from one end of the unknown universe to the other.

Ah... the 15 pink lakes of Pylamoridies on Planet 5* in the Jolminabogola galaxy, the ice ball belt circling that galaxy, canals of Mars, seasonal typhonic oceans on Safab-Makin, the moon that circles Planet Barren in the Nnebogalaxy, the alien who came to Earth and drank buckets of water after being exhausted from its/hers/his journey from Hix, great lost and found rivers of the most famous planet, Melaniacia, the identical five million feet neopic towers that spew water every two earth years on Planet /Kuuu, Tiasy—22, the oval water planet, the 98% water amoebic structures that traveled from Earth but returned unexpectedly after only a billion light years. What would the universe do without love at first sight?
