March 15, 2013 – Sure, you’re familiar with the phrase “Beware the ides of March”, commemorating that day in 44 B.C. when Brutus, the ultimate backstabber, murdered Julius Caesar. Ides, referring to the Roman calendar, signifies the middle of the month.
But you may not know that March 15 is also “National Everything You Think is Wrong Day”.
Does that mean because I think Caesar was murdered on this day that he really wasn’t? Or can I safely assume that those events actually happened because history tells me so, and I should be confident that I know it instead?
I may sound like an astrologer who warns you about Mercury going into retrograde, but it’s probably best to avoid making any major decisions today. Lay low and wait for tomorrow. Then again, don’t listen to me because anything I think today is obviously wrong.
It will all work out in the end because tomorrow (March 16) is “National Everything You Do is Right Day“. And if you’re still confused, remember March 17 is St. Patty’s day, so toss back a few cold ones and it won’t matter if you’re right and wrong.
