My Better Man

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!
