So. Some of you are going to question my soundtrack selection today.
After all. . . Pearl Jam's Better Man is a song about a woman stuck in a bad relationship. . . trapped and wasting away . . . because she can't find a better man.
And . . . me? Well. I'm not. Stuck, I mean. Or wasting away. In fact, I FOUND my Better Man . . . a long time ago.
But I love this song, and I actually think about my Better Man whenever I hear it. And . . . it's been stuck in my head this week. And . . . it's my Better Man's birthday today. So . . . sing it, Eddie!
(If you want to hear the song - above - without the tribute-to-Pearl-Jam audience participation part, skip to about the 2-minute mark.)
Happy Birthday, Tom!
I can't imagine a Better Man. . .
to laugh with . . .
or grow with . . .
or explore with . . .
or be with.
Happy Birthday, my Better Man!
