“Mom”, Mimi said urgently, “Can you bake a pie for me to take to school tomorrow.”
“What one earth do you need a pie for?” was my astonished reply.
“It’s 3.14, National Pi day” she said, as though it was the most logical thing in the world. (and I suppose, if you are going to celebrate Pi, you would be one of those logical types that already knew this.) Of course, I was perfectly willing to provide a pie in the name of science. Time (nor inclination) didn’t allow me to bake a pie, but fortunately our local grocery store happily provided us with a freshly baked pie.
I had to laugh when she turned to me and said, “Oh, and I don’t think I’m going to need a lunch because almost everyone in my class is bringing a pie”.
Happy Pi Day!
