15 Mar

As any well-read individual may know, today is a very notable day in history. I am referring, of course, to the Ides of March (aka March 15th). The day that Brutus backstabbed his bestie Caesar.

Considering the fact that my luck lately has been (to put it mildly) sub-par, I would love nothing more than to hide inside all day like a hobbit on a particularly unlucky day of the year.

Let me clarify, I’m not a superstitious person, I just would rather not tempt the fates who seem to have it out for me. I’m consoled by the notion that at this point things can ONLY get better because frankly, how much worse can they get? (this question alone is tempting the fates…I can feel them scheming).

Unfortunately, I made a promise to myself and those closest to me, that instead of cowering in the corner , wallowing in self pity and despair, I will face the day. Even if it’s the Ides of March…

    Face it is good! This day was actually good to me last year, since I walked out of a federal prison camp after 21 months. On balance I’d prefer my outcome last year to that of Caesar. 😉
