2) Pi Day
Pi Day, March 14th, commemorates the mathematical constant pi. It’s celebrated on March 14th because 3, 1 and 4 are the three most significant digits in pi. This may seem like a nerdy-math-geek celebration, but I will take any excuse to have pie.
What is your favorite pie, and what was the last time you had some?
“A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.”
“A two-year-old is kind of like having a blender, but you don’t have a top for it.”
“I don’t have to look up my family tree, because I know that I’m the sap.”
