A piece of popcorn escaped from the pan and flew across the kitchen like Superman.

It ping-ponged back and forth between the oven and the freezer. Then it shot up to the ceiling like a daredevil trapeezer.

I tried and tried to catch it, but it never missed a trick. So finally I gave up and ate a liquorice stick.
