Happy Birthday, Pi…

 

No, not the character in the movie who went to sea with – of all things – a tiger…

And not the birthday of the guy (or woman… I don’t really have any empirical knowledge as to whom invented what…), I say, the person who came up with the whole fruit in a dish and cover it with a pastry of some kind and then heat it to the temperature of approximately molten lava for around 3.14159 hours…

No, I’m talking about Pi day…
Which is, of course, only an approximation…

I mean, how does one represent .14159265359 worth of a day?
With the clock, and a calculator, I would assume…
But someone’s gonna be upset because you left off the rest of the digits…

How many digits are there, you might ask…?

Millions…

And counting…

Try rounding that up on your standard 24-hour clock…

Me…?

I’m too busy shoveling out from under a mound a Pi snow…
(Snow Pi…? Snow Pie…? Mmmmmmm, apples…!)

“A-yep…
“I remember the great Pi snow of ought-17… We had to shovel the snow in our bare feet, up hill, in both directions…
“And we had to use teaspoons… Too poor to be able to afford a table spoon…
“Shovel…? Snow shovel…? what do you think I’m made of…?
“Gold…?
“We ain’t no Rocky-fellows… We had to use what was available…
“And we liked it!!!”

 

Annndddddd we’re back…

 

So, as far as today is concerned, 3.14 will just have to do…

Besides…

The Pi I got coming down around here is more of your garden variety icebox type of pie, as they used to call them where I grew up…

 

Thankfully, it’s not actual refrigerators dropping out of the sky…

A shovel full of icy snow is heavy enough as it is!
