So, the Ides of March has passed!

I don't know if I wasn't paying attention in school or if my memory's going or both! [I'm betting on the latter]

Have you ever wondered from where some sayings come?

I was surfing the net [which, I haven't done in a while] and saw the saying "Beware the Ides of March" I remember hearing or reading the saying over years [oops, I'm telling my age] and wondered from where it came. Now I remember [after I went and looked it up]!

Beware the Ides of March is the name of the date March 15th in the Roman calendar. The what else I didn't know: the Ides is also the name of the 15th day of May, July, and October and the name of the 13th day of the other eight months.

In modern times [ I guess 44 BC is considered modern] Ides of March is best known as the date Julius Caesar was assassinated and is now used as a metaphor for impending doom.

Okay, so this is boring...whatever! It got me titillated! Yo! Caesar you died in my birthday month!

Beware The Ides of that March is leaving like a lamb!

You were really curious that you even dug out historical facts about it. ^^ An antithesis of the intellectually lethargic person.
