Do you know what today is? Well it’s just the most special day this century to those mathematicians and dessert fans among us.
It’s Pi Day!
I cant claim to be a math whiz; Far from it. But I do love me some good ol’ fashioned apple pie. Well… all desserts really.
Today’s special because it’s 3/14… or the start of the infinite number represented by the Greek letter π that mathematically represents the ratio of a circumference of a circle to its diameter – which is constant at 3.14159… all the way to infinity.
Have I lost you?
Hang in there! I promise there’s pie coming!
Today at 9:26:53 will be the only time this century when the first ten digits of pi will be represented: 3.141592653.
So let’s celebrate (there’s always a reason to!) with some breakfast pie! AKA an apple tart?
I cheated and went to Sweet Lady Jane on Melrose for some single serve apple pies with a brandy glaze. YUM!
Happy Pi / Pie Day of the Century!
