Better Now

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? Yes--at school I didn't tell students how stressful and difficult the year was.  This was by far the most challenging school year of my career.
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? I have
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? last Saturday I was at the Emergency Room being checked for a possible DVT (it wasn't).  I went in at 3:30 am and left at noon.  It was a tedious wait.

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--two colleagues are each expecting boys

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? DJ
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? no, drugs and alcohol don't mix and I have several prescriptions that don't play well with alcohol
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 would only go to a licensed professional
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 did shop at Sears

9) Random question: What's your favorite way to spend an evening at home alone? reading or listening to a book while knitting

I prefer reading when I am home alone too. Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend!

A DVT? I have had those scares - and they are concerning. I've had to switch to compression stockings because I have such bad veins. Thank you for your comment on my post about my day at the hospital with my husband. That was very kind.

#3 DVTs are scary! I am always on guard for them because of the meds that I take and a friend had them and caused a blockage in her heart and brain.

FWIW, my doctor thought I had a DVT and after a trip to the ER we found out I didn't. But she couldn't figure out what was causing the pain and inflammation. It took a chiropractor to diagnose my back trouble. If you can't get this ironed out, you might want to do the same. No reason to be uncomfortable if you don't have to be!

I'm not really a "drinker" and I never go overboard, but I do enjoy a glass of wine. I dread the day I end up on some medication that will keep me from indulging. My hubby's and my trips to the wineries are among our favorite getaways.

I can't imagine reading and knitting at the same time!
