Today marks the Straight White Guy’s official entrance into the late thirties. As opposed to the early or mid-thirties.

There will be a great big Official Celebration sometime in the near term... but in the meantime, it’s not a bad time to think of gifts that are suitable for the occasion.


Eric has always been partial to the fine distilled beverages of Scotland, but I’ve got to believe that he has pretty much tasted every kind of uisge beatha ever made. So that one’s a dead end.

Maybe it’s time to think outside the box. How about:

Movie tickets?

A nice book?

Or a coffee mug?

Whadda ya think?

In the meantime, please join me in wishing Eric a long, healthy, happy life. As we Red Sea Pedestrians like to say, “Ad meah v’esrim... v’yom.” Until one hundred twenty... and a day.

Why the day?

Well, why would you want someone to croak on his own birthday?
