A Side of Ides

It’s March 15, so if you could give a warning, what would it be? Answer in the comments by completing this sentence:

Beware the _____________.

You are not limited to a single word or even a single sentence. Explanations for the warning are not required, but could be helpful.

Be humorous, be serious or be both, but whatever you do, be careful!

Like I said, it’s March 15.*

    I started re-reading Julius Caesar on a whim a few days ago, and my timing is perfect, because poor old Julius was assassinated just last night before bed.

    But as for today, Beware the Headache That Will Keep You From Going to Church and Enjoying the Prettiest Day Yet. I do hope the ibuprofen kicks in soon…

  2. Beware the idiots of March*

    Oh this reminds me of high school! One of my friends had a 3/15 birthday, and we always decorated her locker and gave her a lunchtime “surprise” birthday “party.” We’d pretend we’d forgotten her birthday and then throw the party. So, in honor of Kati: “Beware the opening of one’s locker because it might explode with party decorations and crazy presents from equally crazy friends!”

  5. Beware of those who will tell you that you need to go the Spiritual Gym to perfect your holiness benchpress and your righteous curls, they may just have you ending up blown up, staring at your yourself in the reverse mirror of self-righteousness. Then like all reverse mirrors they always end up giving you a distorted view of yourself. How’s that!

    Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
    The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
    Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
    The frumious Bandersnatch!
    And, as in uffish thought he stood,
    The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
    Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
    And burbled as it came!

    (You must have known this was coming!)
