Zooming through the air in the flying car, I feel a sense of freedom. I have been locked in the house for a number of weeks. They said ‘keep off the road’, they said ‘keep off the water’, but they never said anything about keeping off the sky!

I take a moment to enjoy the scenery, snowy mountains, grassy green land. Suddenly I realise I’m zooming towards a house. I yank the hand brake but it’s too late. I go crashing through one side of the roof and out the other.

Never mind, I think. This happens all the time!
