Ides of March
March 15th, 2012 | Ann
Today was the Ides of March. I didn’t even know what that was until Carissa said something on Twitter. I googled it and read on Wikipedia that Julius Caesar was killed that day – stabbed 23 times. Then it was made into a movie directed by George Clooney.
A 2011 article said it best – “The legend of this day is to expect bad things to happen on March 15 – as even the world’s most powerful emperor can suffer on it.”
I’ll be honest. I had a bad day. A really bad day. Work was super stressful, and the one thing I looked forward to – my post-work run, was a total flop.
Without getting into details, I can say…. I am so incredibly happy that today is over.
No more Ides of March.
