Happy Ides of March...day? Best wishes on this the Ides of March...? Is that something you can even wish a person? Dunno. So...have a happy anniversary of the assassination of Caesar. That's not morbid at all.
Julius Caesar is my favorite Shakespeare play so I always take note of this day. Plus, Roman history is interesting, so there's that too. But back to Shakespeare. "Beware the Ides of March," has become one of those cultural phrases that everyone says. Most people don't know it was said by a soothsayer in a play, but they know the line all the same. And how cool is that? I love to know that Shakespeare, even all these years later, still transcends pop culture.
