Knocked something off the counter.

I made my way downstairs

Glad to have an excuse to get vertical.

I could not believe my eyes:

There were peanuts dancing on the counters

Scampering across the ceiling and flying through the air!

As if suspended in time and space.

I was completely speechless, trying to 

Comprehend what I was seeing.
