Eileen was frustrated the other day because no one at her workplace (which is a LIBRARY) knew anything about the “Ides of March.”
Education is a wonderful thing, n’est pas?
Most of these people have degress. At least I think they do. Not all of them.
Here is the wiki poop:
A day in the Roman calendar, that marked the approximate middle of the month, i.e., the fifteenth day in the months of March, May, July, and October, and the thirteenth day in the other eight months. The word ides comes from Latin, meaning “half division” (of a month).
Wiki has an entry on Ides of March itself.
