I was babysitting these two little kids, and I was getting them ready for bed upstairs when the phone rang. I ran downstairs to answer it, and on the way down the stairs I tripped over their cat and sprawled face first down the stairs, crashing into a small table and knocking it over at the bottom. I was fine, but the lamp on the table broke and it turns out it was antique! The parents were really nice about it but I was still SO embarrassed!
