The popcorn buzzed around, each kernel bursting into something else. Something new, something incredible. One became a toy, a favored old one lost many years ago. One became a piece of candy, one filled with sticky caramel and chocolate.
In general, my life was pretty bland. Day in and day out it was the same thing. Eat, work, clean, sleep. That was it. But today, today was different. Today I learned something new. Magic exists, but not how one would expect it to.
