Saturday 9: Better Now (2018)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
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? Nope. I had a tooth pulled Friday morning and will be on painkillers all weekend. Opiates and liquor are not a good combo.
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? Only a pro. And even then I'd be nervous. (It amuses to see tattoos on the arms of anti-vaxxers. Um, did they know for a fact what was in the ink injected under their skin?)
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? Of course, because I got a 15% discount. I worked at Sears for 10 years beginning right after high school. First I was a secretary and then I got my first writing job. I began writing about men's workclothes for the Sears Catalog. My first-ever headline was: "BLUE CHAMBRAY SHIRTS ... every way you like them." I saw someone lugging the big catalog home on the train and was so proud!
