25 June 2022

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love to answer the questions, however, and here are today's questions!

Saturday 9: Better Now (2018)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) In this song, Post Malone tries to assure his ex that he's better now ... but he's not. He's still hurting. Have you recently told someone you were fine when you weren't?
No.  I haven't been "not fine" in a long time.

2) He and his girl were so close he introduced her to his extended family, and now his aunts and uncles wonder where she's gone. Have you remained close to an ex's friends/family?
Not really.  Now all of my few ex's families are dead, and before that I rarely had occasion to see them.

3) He sings that he never meant to let her down. What about you? Have you recently encountered anything -- big or small -- that didn't live up to your expectations?
I've watched a couple of movies that weren't as good as I expected them to be.  (I just watched the end of Jail House Rock.  I'd never seen an Elvis Presley movie before and this was completely stupid)

4) Post recently announced he will soon become a father for the first time. Do you know anyone who is currently expecting a baby?
Yes.  My friend David Gerrold's daughter-in-law is expecting their second child.  I've had such a good time watching their son, now about 2, growing up.

5) Before making it big as a musician, he supported himself as a wedding DJ. Think back to the last wedding you attended. Did they have a live band or a DJ?
The last wedding I attended was in 2005 when my friend Ellen and Shelly were the first gay couple in Yolo County married, 5 minutes after it became legal.  Their reception had a band, I believe--can't remember, but I think they did.

6) Not satisfied being a successful musician, Post has branched out and introduced his own rose wine, Maison No. 9. Will you replenish your beer/wine/spirits this weekend?
I no longer drink alcohol, so I have no supply that needs replenishing.

7) Post Malone has more than 70 different tattoos. He designs them himself and is so into ink that he has tattooed his friends. Would you trust a friend or relative to do your body art (tattoo or piercing)? Or would you go to a licensed professional?
I have absolutely NO desire to get a tattoo.  I just have one piercing in each ear and had that done professionally in 1967.

8) In 2018, when this song was popular, Sears filed for bankruptcy. In the 1970s, Sears was known as the place "Where America Shops." As of 2021, there were only 23 Sears stores left. Did you ever shop at Sears, either at the store or through the catalog?
I don't believe I ever shopped the Sears catalog, but when we lived in the Bay Area (until 1973), I often shopped at Sears.

9) Random question: What's your favorite way to spend an evening at home alone?
Watching TV
