Christmas Playlist [#TheEichLife no.93]

My brother sent me a link last night to the new album from a little-known pop band we both like from Texas. It’s entitled “Baby, It’s Cold War Outside” and – you guessed it – is a cheeky take on a Christmas album.  “Christmas albums always crack me up,” he typed – a statement I […]

Bold As Love [#TheEichLife no.92]

Almost exactly two years ago, I was published on these pages for the first time with this opening paragraph: It’s been a weird week. No one is going to argue about that. And forget parties and preferences and candidates for a second. Just look at how we have all started to treat each other and […]

Singing In The Shower [#TheEichLife no.91 #EurekaMoments]

I am both familiar with and a fan of singing in the shower.  But I usually partake in this practice when I am in my house. Alone. But the guy in the shower stall next to me at the gym this morning? He wasn’t just singing (or, to be fair, it was really aggressive humming). […]

Free TV [#TheEichLife no.86]

11 years ago – right before flat-screen TVs hit an affordable price point – I decided to buy a television. I had a little bit of money and wanted a much bigger screen than I’d ever had before. It was time to go from a 19-inch television to a 32-inch TV. I was going to […]

Hold My Hand [#TheEichLife no. 84]

Stephen and Kevin were a few years ahead of me. They were misfit in the parochial middle school, wearing long jackets and hairstyles the handbook didn’t validate. I knew they were trouble, but also knew enough to realize that kids like that had access to things I didn’t. And I was too naïve to worry […]

On Heat [#TheEichLife no. 83]

The heat is overwhelming. It makes it easy to make excuses. I spent most of July 4th spread out on a pool float, drifting over and over the same square inches. (Even the pool water was hot.) The day was unproductive, but it felt justified. Because… heat. I tried to run the lawn mower. The […]
