Beware the Ides of March!

When I was in school... I can't quite remember, might have been 6th or 7th grade, the teacher was asking us about the Ides of March. She asked us if we knew what it meant.
I rose my hand.

"Yes, Mike?" she called on me.
"It means my sister's birthday is today, and I forgot to get her a present."
The class laughed, the teacher arched an eyebrow at me, and I amended my answer, "It is also the day when Brutus betrayed Julius Caesar and assassinated him."

So Happy Birthday, sis. I still didn't get you anything, but that'll be after I take Dad to dialysis.
