« "It's like . . . it's like . . . I don't know WHAT it's like": On the Limitations of Metaphor (by Brian Brodeur) | Main | ...To End All Wars (by Laura Orem) »

August 04, 2014


Having never been cursed with this particular ailment (nor anyone else in my family), I can never be accused of being able to register empathy for the hair-deprived. It may even sound as if I'm boasting. I would never do that. Do the bald have any idea how much it costs to keep the hairful stocked with quality styling gel? Forget health care. There should be a national Obamagel program.

Charles' analyis is, as usual, balanced, comprehensive, and ineffably twainian. Pleasure to read!

Excellent job, Charles! Good options detailed with a degree of subtlety -- sometimes! I love the succinctness of this and its various convolutions.

Also pleased that you came to terms with this dilemma as a young man with style.

Very pleased you are continuing to write these entries on a regular basis!

I love your humor, Charles!! This is a standout.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
