This whole week, I have been thinking “Why does March 14th sound like a familiar date to me?” I only know one person who has a birthday today; I don’t recall any special event occurring on this day.
But this morning I woke up and then realized….Ah! Today is Pi Day.
Yes, Pi as in the Greek letter “Pi”. For those of you not familiar with Pi, it is “the symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Pi = 3.1415926535…” (quotation from the website). I remember in middle school and high school that all my math teachers used to celebrate this day with us in class, by asking each of us to bring in none other than Pi, er, pie to class to share with everyone.
So to celebrate this day, I went to the grocery store and bought myself this lovely little pie (just the right size for me!). It is a caramel apple pie with pecans. Smells delicious; I shall eat it later today.
