We celebrated Pi Day yesterday -- a little early, but the real Pi Day (March 14) falls during our Spring Break next week. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this concept, the first few digits of pi are 3.14, hence the celebration on March 14. Depending on your Math Geek Quotient, you might even celebrate Pi Minute at 1:59 in the afternoon (3.14159...). (If you celebrate it at 1:59 in the morning, then you are probably studying for a math exam later that day. Which no doubt many of my students were doing -- I gave two midterms yesterday.)
Anyway, Ben loves Pi Day. Here he is wearing his Super Pi tee shirt (thanks, Grammy!). I'm dressed like a pirate, because ... well, it was a pirate-themed event this year. Long story. Pi-rate -- get it? I wasn't really intending to cast such a flirtatious glance -- a moment before I had been looking at Ben, and then I started to turn my head right as the picture was taken ... you know how it happens.
