Beware the Ides of March and Groundhogs climbing trees!

Remember when your English teacher (possibly me) put all that emphasis on the soothsayer screaming, “Beware the Ides of March” at Caesar? Sure, it was one of many omens that were noted by everybody BUT Caesar. Then Brutus and friends synced their cycles and got stabby together so clearly the soothsayer knew what up.

Turns out the ides just mean the middle of the Roman month.

Beware of what your English teacher emphasizes!

On that note: Personally, I like to point out that the play opens with the Feast of Lupercal where Antony and friends are racing around naked while the crowd whips them with goat skins. Fertility y’all! This is the shit kids need to know!

This may not be as disturbing as soothsayers, naked goat skin whipping, storms, or ghosts roaming the streets, but things are getting weird at Grammie’s house this week…again!

She’s mad that her nemesis the groundhog is back. He looks quite plump. (But not plump enough for good eatin’. Gpa says they are not a tasty.)
