Lifetime Achievement
For many readers, only one item in December's "Life List" was an absolute must-do (even though Sharon's kinda busy, not to mention married). For others, there's more to life than what you can put on a list.

I can’t imagine this being an original offer, but please pass along to Sharon Stone that if she’s ever in central Ohio and wants her legs shaved, she can give me a call. My number’s in the book, and I’d be honored. JEFF PESSELL Newark, Ohio May I suggest you scratch any item in your list that merely requires money to accomplish, and start over.

As the author of five novels and a collection of short stories, has tapped into innumerable sources of inspiration for her critically acclaimed fiction. But it was a particularly unusual incident that provided the impulse for her latest novel, Make Believe (Little, Brown).

I’VE KNOWN CHARLIE PIERCE for a long time. I first met him in December of 1989, at the party celebrating the debut of something called The National Sports Daily. The National had set out to be the “Wall Street Journal of sports,” and Charlie and I were in its employ.

It's only natural. Which is why we asked her to offer the Esquire reader some of the more effective things a man on the make can do to cater to those wants in this, the most romantic of months.</p>

During this, the 70th anniversary of the first milking of an airborne cow (you could look it up), much of the nation shivers; the balmy portions, they laugh at the other portions—but at least the northerners needn't endure Mardi Gras. . . . warning: Black History Month, an otherwise noble commemorative event, stirs recitations of Maya Angelou. . . .

YOU DON'T KNOW ROSS MICHAELS, though you've probably seen him—he's a precision driver who's steered some 40 different cars in as many television ads. No car, though, has ever excited Michaels like BMW's new 400 hp Z8 roadster, the $125,000 James Bond ride you saw in The World Is Not Enough. Michaels will tell you that he sighed when he first saw the car.

There are those movies you watch with the guys: Fight Club, say, or South Park. There are those movies you watch alone, if at all, and we don't want to know about: Catholic Schoolgirl Rumpus, perhaps. Then there are those movies you watch with her, the movies that facilitate seduction, or, as Barry White would say, getting it together, baby.

TED ALLEN
No movies, no message on the machine, no scented note in the mailbox? No one cares? Au contraire: There are thousands of far lonelier hearts than yours pining for that mash note, that effusion of devotion, that debit-card PIN. Their numbers are legion, and their names, at least for a time, contain numbers, for they are prison pen pals, plenty of them women, now easily perused in the comfort of your home, pictures and everything.

SO SHE’S LANGUID in your lair, then, curled fetchingly there, and you’re leaving this to chance? Down through the eons, a fine fire has not only helped man survive the wilds, it’s done him a heck of a lot more good than, say, Spanish fly. In all probability, however, you’ve been building fires the wrong way your whole life.

IT'S OFFICIAL: Men who smell good get play. Or, as scientist types put it, "Men's cologne has a positive effect on female sexual arousal during erotic fantasy." A recent study at the Kinsey Institute examined men's colognes in the so-called fresh-fougère category— fern-based scents built upon the interplay of lavender, oakmoss, and coumarin.

What women see in bed-and-breakfasts men will never understand. Sure, they can be cozy, but half the time there's no ESPN, and you have to eat breakfast with that couple from Boston who use antique as a verb, and feign interest in the innkeeber's grandson, a male nurse in Ohio who never quite found the right girl.

FRANCINE MAROUKIAN
I ONCE WAS INFATUATED with a boutique wine salesman who spent every day and every night in relentlessly chic restaurants. This guy not only wouldn’t stay at home, he couldn’t, terrified as he was that doing so would make him a boring person. He was the classic free-range chicken: a roving man who can’t commit.

FOOTBALL SEASON'S OVER and baseball's still two months off. Now's the perfect time to show her that there's more to you than the couch and a bottle of beer. In fact, come Valentine's Day, you might want to make it the couch and a bottle of wine. Which reminds me: Any Romeo with more money than taste can drop a chunk of change on some trophy wine.

The Answers
Wedding Presents, Prison Rape, and Talking to Your Daughter
ESQUIRE'S ANSWER FELLA believes that there are no stupid questions, just stupid people who don't ask questions, fearing they'll look stupid. So ask Answer Fella anything. If he doesn't know the answer, he'll find out who does, or who has a guess that sounds right.

How much should you spend on a wedding present? The question here isn't really how much you should spend, but how little you can get away with spending while still looking good. And the answer is: It depends, heavily, on any number of factors.

Director Anthony Minghella makes movies you want to listen to, films in which music plays as critical a role as the actors or dialogue. His style isn't of the cue-the-violins-for-the-love-scene variety. The score is as likely to pull against the emotions onscreen as trumpet them.

A WALL STREET FINANCIAL-SERVICES-SOFTWARE executive I know was given the task in 1998 of growing his company’s sales by 30 percent. His bonus and stock options were going to depend on his ability to meet that number. In the summer of 1998, the financial markets went into the toilet, so he missed the goal.

Charles P. Pierce
THE SINGLE MOST misbegotten notion ever attributed to a major writer is idea that there are no second acts in American lives. Now, granted, if you dedicate the first act of your life to writ ing a couple of great novels, gradually replacing your entire blood volume with gin and losing your head over a semiattainable madwoman named Zelda, you're unlikely to be around for the second-act curtain.

IN HIS LAST MOVIE, The Bone Collector, Denzel Washington played a brilliant, frustrated quadriplegic. In his new one, The Hurricane, he’s an unjustly imprisoned boxing contender.

In addition to that whole killing-the-enemy-and-blowin'-up-stuff routine, Uncle Sam has proven himself to be a damn fine designer. Take a look in your closet and count up the victories. Those khakis you wear to invade the Home Depot? That leather jacket you don when conducting maneuvers in the park with your kids? That raincoat you throw on to mount an offensive on the movie theater?

OH, WHO WILL BE OUR VALENTINE? There are so many to choose from, yet none hot enough to get bothered about, not one we would forsake all others for. When the day comes, will there be anyone out there whom we can ask, in good conscience and with a smidgen of passion: Will you be our president? We can’t seem to get excited.

<p>If English were a sexier language, we'd try to describe her. If we were more erudite, we would try to compare her to Botticelli's Venus, because there's something Renaissance, or maybe even Victorian, about her beauty, instead we'll just call her ethereal and radiant, and let her photograph show you why.</p>

<p>HERE IS A MORALITY TALE WHOSE END, as I write, is uncertain. A man fell in love, was married, and had children, his wife strayed, then returned, but his life still ended in disaster. While such an outline sufficiently describes his abbreviated passage, detail, as Vladimir Nabokov somewhere writes, is always welcome.</p>

SENSES THAT GIVE PROOF OF JOY, TO BE IN LOVE,TO BE IN LOVE AND alive, to love Jenny Templin and to know Jenny loved him, to know the feeling of love, to know they’d have a child soon—why, it was all a fortunate accident, luck, a gift of chance, one sperm out of millions, one egg with the odds against it, the world already crowded, stasis always easier than growth, nothing always dominating something, so life could never be more than a minute fraction of its own potential—</p>
