How do you say "pop out" ?

It means you leave your own house for a short period like (for example) you pop out (to the shop) to buy a loaf of bread.

sortir d'un coup ?
faire un saut dehors ?
:confused:

    "Faire un saut" is the one i can think of right now. Indeed you would say "faire un saut au magasin" or "faire un saut chez mes parents" - i think that "faire un saut" reflects the best this idea of going out somewhere with the intention to come back soon.

    Oh I found "sortir" too !

    if you say "if you want to stay alone in your house, pop out the kid." it would mean
    "si tu veux rester seul chez toi, sors (?) le gamin."

    Now I know "pop out to the shop" is faire un saut au magasin ;)
