The kids have been wanting to go to Ikea for the last few weeks. Especially Max. He LOVES to go to Ikea. (this may or may not have something to do with their fresh cinnamon rolls......)
Today I realized that there were a few things that I wanted to buy from there, so we all piled into the car and headed to Ikea.
We got an AMAZING parking place. Right up close. (this has absolutely nothing to do with my story, it's just that I rarely get a decent parking place, and I was really excited about this)
As we were walking into Ikea, Max got excited, because he realized that he would get to RIDE THE ESCALATOR!
We got on the escalator without incident. Of course, Max had a grip on my hand, but other than that, he did pretty well getting on.
Halfway up my phone started ringing. I briefly let go of Max's hand to get my phone out of my pocket and Max panicked. He started screaming "HOLD MY HAND! HOLD MY HAND! DON'T LET GO! COME ON! COME ON! COME ON!!!
I nearly dropped the phone as he was grabbing onto my hand with both of his hands. I transferred the phone to my other hand so I could hold on to Max's hand and then he saw the top of the escalator approaching and.......
"PICK ME UP! PICK ME UP! PICK ME UP! PICK ME UP!!!
COME ON! PICK. ME. UUUUUUUUUUP!!!!!!"
Then he grabbed the front of my shirt, lifted his legs off the escalator and hung there, pulling my shirt way down and...........
Yes, I might have sort of flashed a group of people standing at the top of the escalator.
Seriously, does anyone know if Ikea has a security camera pointed at the escalator? I'm really worried that this is going to end up on YouTube.
