When your AirPod Pro keeps falling out of your ear

After stopping to look for it on the ground and jamming it back for the zillionth time, it occurred to me that perhaps I should downsize the rubber ear thingy from the Large ones I use to Medium.


Addendum: after shooting the video below

demonstrating what a pain in the butt it can be to have an AirPod Pro fall out of your ear while you're running in thick grass — in this case my yard — I spent an hour on my hands and knees on a sunny 98° heat index day and failed to find the device.

I went back inside and took a chill pill, then started searching again, this time wearing sunglasses and using a garden rake to move the grass.


After about fifteen minutes of systematically examining the area I knew the AirPod Pro must be in, it turned up.

Why collaborating doesn't work for me

Long story short: it's because my attention to detail and getting it right no matter how many times I have to redo something ultimately wears down and finally drives prospective partners to flee.

Typical example: look at the graphic up top.

Note the four rectangular boxes:


Now look carefully at their corners.

Do you see the difference between this image:


and the first presentation of this graphic above?

If not, look again, focusing on the outside corners of the two outside boxes.

Now you do you see the difference?

Very, very few people will even notice — much less go back and redo — the image to restore the original rounded corners.

I can't not do it.

Couch Potato Light


From the website:

This adorable ambient light is styled like a TV-watching spud.

If we're being honest, we can all admit that at one time or another we've spent too much time sitting in front of the warm glow of the television screen.

But with the Couch Potato Light, there's no limit to how long you can appreciate this spiffy sofa-seated spud's warm glow!

The tube-watching tuber turns the act of sedentary passivity into an adorable pastime, thanks to his cute carb-loaded figure and mute expression.

Binge-watch this non-action figure seated atop his little loveseat without adding a single calorie to your snacking budget.

Plant yourself beside him and make him your new series binge-watching companion as you bask in his gentle glow.

Heed his advice when he automatically shuts off after an hour of inactivity… or maybe turn him back on to enjoy some more of the spud's show.
