My son Rodney pranked me with this Christmas gift.
I thought it was a cordless hair dryer!
Turned out , it was a gag gift — a big-ass airpod!
He had me there!
I used it to boom up and play on repeat my playlist of whiny, mopey, achy-breaky songs that I listened to when my heart was shattered by my first major crush at the tender age of 17.
Haha! The songs drove Rodney crazy! "D-E-P-R-E-S-S-I-N-G!" he groaned !
