Correção de texto: Zoom! Swosh!

Preciso de uma ajudinha nisso ai.. please!


“ZOOM! SWOSH! Boy, we were really sinking fast; the candy must’ve added the extra weight! I had the nose up and the engine full throttle as I eased the control yoke carefully back into my lap. Finally that wonderful sound came, PLOP! SPLASH! Whew, I did it again -- I defied gravity. I asked Paul to lighten up on the candy next time.

Thank you in advance!

Candy must be an euphemism for drugs, specially the ones in "rock form" such as crack or cocaine, but now it´s also short for ecstasy as well (Urban Dictionary).

Don´t know if he refers to an airplane with a load of it, or if he felt the smell of the smoke of it when lighted and, all of sudden, was flying (briefly) under the influence. Don´t know if the "extra weight" was litterally or a way of speaking. But, from the last part of the piece, certainly it was the latter.
