The Ides of March have come and gone and I don't know about you guys, but I'm still here. I didn't get stabbed in the back by any of my friends (literally or figuratively). At least, not that I know of. Because I took the threat of the Ides of March seriously and practiced extreme caution, I survived the day and didn't even see any strange or fantastical visions. (Unless you count a glowing Frisbee and a smiling apple wearing a hat) Heck, I even got a free t-shirt and a free hot dog and my school's gymnastics squad beat the number one school in the country. That's a success story if I ever heard one.
Thankfully, we don't have to worry about the Ides of March again for an whole 'nother year. But when March 15, 2014 rolls around, be vigilant! Be careful! Beware the Ides of March!
For real, you guys. Shakespeare knew what he was talking about.
