When the twenty days of continuous rain wasn’t enough, they sent a two-day deluge. With the scouting team reporting no survivors, excitement grew. Success at last.
The group procured a trio of carts for their macabre  spree. With a great amount of pushing and grunting they went up and down the streets like shopping aisles scooping up  bloated bodies of mice and men and everything in between. When their baskets were full they returned to the parking lot where the groceries could be easily beamed up to the mother ship. The gatherers drooling in anticipation of their earthling delicacies.

    Seems like a bad idea to kill them all in one go. There’s no coming back for seconds that way. Silly aliens.
