A Dozen Reasons to Love March (If You Don’t Love March Already!)

slice-of-life2I am participating in #SOL19. Thanks to the twowritingteachers blog team for this wonderful opportunity to read,
respond, and write for the month of March!  

 

March 1: As the saying goes, March comes “in like a lion, out like a lamb.”  We look forward to the “lamb” part of this saying!

March 2: NASA astronaut Scott Kelly returned from space after one full year, setting a new record for the longest uninterrupted trip to space. SpaceX to launch today with a mannequin on board – no humans!

March 5: Cinco De Marcho, the start of a 12-day drinking regimen for anyone who wishes to “train one’s liver for the closing ceremonies on St. Patrick’s Day.”

March (all days): It is the best month for basketball!

March 13: Daylight saving time begins, freeing American city-dwellers from the constant refrain of “it’s dark before I even leave work.”

March 14: Pi Day celebrates the annual occurrence of 3/14 with math jokes, pi-reciting competitions, and (of course) freshly baked pie.

March 17: St. Patrick’s Day turns the Chicago River green, and too many livers cirrhosis-damage-brown.

March 20: The sun shines on the equator for the Vernal Equinox, giving us a near 50-50 split of day and night.

March 21: The 10th anniversary Twitter founder Jack Dorsey inaugurating the social media site with its profound first tweet: “just setting up my twttr”

March 28: Almost there! In just three more posts after today, you will have completed Slice of Life – a post each day!

March 31: You made it! Congratulations!  See you on #SOL20!

March 31: Celebrate Clare Landrigan’s birthday! Can we join you at Mike’s Pastry in Boston’s historic North End for a one-of-a-kind cannoli?
