Cornbread & Lawnmowers It's hard to eat cornbread and drive at the same time. I love cornbread for breakfast. One day I was driving to work with my cornbread and coffee. I was a little sleepy ….

She started backing down, thinking she could jump it or something and ended up with her car parked on top of it and the back wheels up in the air. That reminded of something stupid that I did once.
