Popcorn causes Panic

So we were sat watching David Attenborough’s “Frozen Planet" last night and we got an urgent phone call from down the pier. It was Mark the Spark wanting to use our microwave to do some popcorn…
 
This is nothing new, our microwave has been shared before, and last time he left the boat stinking of weird smelling potatoes. It was a genteel aroma, a bit like smelly socks mixed with rotten eggs. He did warn us in advance that they pong a bit while they’re being zapped, but how could we refuse a friend in need…?
 
Anyway he appeared with something that looked like a large envelope made out of tinfoil – fascinating. For a moment there we thought it was a lie and we’d have to do the smelly potato thing again.
 
But not to worry, this was the end result…

The background story: There is a microwave somewhere on his boat, but it hasn’t been located since he last had a clean up and stashed it out of sight. I know not why, and it’s best not to ask…
 
So there was only me and Tilly sat watching Frozen Planet while them two were farting about. Just at the exact moment the killer whale jumped out of the water next to the cameraman, the popcorn started exploding as it whirred round in circles…
 
As a result of this traumatic timing I nearly jumped up on the ceiling while Tilly nearly dropped to the floor….
 
I hate popcorn…
