My friend asked me if I got anything cool for Christmas. "No," I said. "No fun toys or anything?" she asked.
Then I thought harder. Wait, I got this thing - duh.
How could I forget? My brother and I received two remote-controlled helicopters for Christmas. I have a theory that my mom actually wanted to buy the helicopters for herself, but "gave" them to us kids because it is more socially acceptable. (Although if that was her thinking, it doesn't really hold water because we are both in our twenties).
Anyway they are fun. Watch this dramatic video I shot from my iPhone to see for yourself.
But then this happened.
