The day after Pi Day #SOL23 15/31

These days, it feels like everyone knows about March 14, Pi Day. I know we didn’t do this when I was younger, but now it’s a thing, so I thought about making some sort of pie yesterday, but skipped it because it’s March Break and I didn’t feel like it.

This morning, I came downstairs to find this (it was on my phone, but I needed my phone for the picture):

I’ll admit, it took me a minute. At first, I thought my husband might be referring to one of our new favourite things which a younger colleague recently shared when I was all steamed up: Cave Johnson Lemons

(Really, you should listen. It’s hilarious.)

But… no, I wasn’t quick enough. Here’s our conversation.

I’m pretty sure (but not 100% sure) that the final picture is from the internet and not from his office, but one can never tell: apparently, in our house, we skip Pi Day and go straight for the Ides of March.

  1. Oh my, I was not prepared. Neither for the image nor the lemons. Oh, March, you harbor of inside/outside jokes and intellectual references! March Fo(u)rth is as far as I go and then it’s the wait until May the Fourth and on it goes. So I feel you on this one. Let us play catch up (catch on?) together.

  2. This is great! You have told this story so well – the suspense! I will have to remember for next year. I am retired now but I can still “celebrate,” if that is the right word.


  3. So I was slow to the joke as well. Our church had a fundraiser today. Caesar Salad lunch. Get it? Hmm. I didn’t but I sold 22 tickets anyway.


  4. Brutal humor.
    I woke up with that feeling of nervous anticipation that one should have on a day like this. I hope nothing else happened besides the Caesarian Dissection.


  5. Ha ha! This is great! I was so lost (and was maybe lost on the May 4th reference, too) until the very end. I also loved the lemon video. I’m pretty sure I need a combustible lemon in my life. I’m going to detonate it when someone says, “You know, you really need to work smarter, not harder.”

  6. Amanda, funny! I think the Ides of March is a great day to celebrate, but beware those combustible lemons. Your post was a lot of fun, with all the details and photos that made it more so!
