National Pi Day

π (the Greek letter pi) is used in math for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to the diameter of that circle, or 3.14.  Today is the 14th day of the 3rd month, or simply 3.14 — do you see the connection?

Since the Greek letter π is pronounced exactly like "pie" (the dessert), this has become a day to eat pie and think about math.  Okay, you've already done enough thinking, if you aren't into math.  So let's celebrate the day.  And how do we do that?  By eating pie, of course!  Today, my friend Donna has ordered a pizza pie (Socrates Revenge* from Dewey's Pizza), and I got the dessert pie (key lime pie) from the grocery store.  Even though we'll be socially distanced, eating in our own apartments, we're still doing this together.

* Socrates Revenge is topped with red onions, black and green olives, spinach, tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, and a blend of mozzarella, fontina, and feta cheeses.

Added late in the day
