Okay, so I promise you that I will be laughing while writing this whole entire post...please join me.

I was talking to my brother this weekend about some memories from when we were younger. I can remember so much...but there is certainly times that I wish to forget...
like this one...
It was Decemeber and I was about 17. My mom and I were upholding a wonderful and delicious tradition by getting some Mrs. Powell's cinnamon rolls [haven't had any? find a store and get 5!] at the Boise Town Square Mall. My dad was driving around the parking lot waiting for us [oh how he hates the mall, especially around the holidays] so we needed to be "in and out" with our cinnamon rolls! We had pre-ordered a dozen, they boxed them up, handed us the boxes, and we were on our way...a record I'm sure for two women in a mall!
As we are heading out of the mall, we hop on the escalator to hurry things up a bit...I step on first and my mom follows me...but not for long.
I don't remember exactly how the heck it happened, but about two second into the "ride" I ended up tumbling down the entire escalator....
the entire moving escalator!
cinnamon rolls flying everywhere!
I'm sure it went a little something like this...

[where the luggage comes down, imagine boxes of hot, homemade cinnamon rolls...and where the pilot runs down...imagine my mom!]

I'm sure I was beat red and full of embarrassment...probably didn't even pick up the cinnamon rolls [I don't even remember]...all I remember was begging my mom not to say a single word to my family who was waiting in the car...and if they asked why we were short on cinnamon rolls...tell them they ran out! Yep, I totally asked my mom to lie for me!
I think I lasted about 2 minutes into the ride home before we both started laughing hysterically and broke down and told the rest of my family...and nobody has ever spoken about it since...
until now!
