It always seems to sneak up on me, but in just over a week we’ll celebrate Mr. Shakespeare’s 445th birthday. What are you doing? Alas, I’m almost certainly doing….nothing. It’s a Thursday, and I’ve got a big boss coming into town for the week so it’s highly unlikely that I could take a vacation day :), and the following weekend (May 2) we are already celebrating both my son’s and my own birthday. So poor April 23 is going to come and go relatively uncelebrated. Perhaps I’ll wear a party hat and toot a horn at my desk. Business idea : Shakespeare’s Birthday greeting cards for Shakespeare geeks to send each other. The rest of the world may not care, but we do.
