A Good Day To Make Pi

I do not bake pies; the first year I was married, my sister-in-law baked Thanksgiving pies at my house and told the family we made them “together.”  Now, I make pumpkin cheesecake for Thanksgiving all by myself. But the pi we celebrate today – I can sink my teeth into this kind of pi: mathematical pi. Today’s date is 3.14 and the first three digits of pi are 3.14. Hence, the festivities. So bake a pi pie or memorize the non-repeating, infinite -- calculated one trillion digits beyond its decimal point and counting -- number as far as your brain will go./Catherine Johnston, End Notes.

Question: Are you better at math or making pies?
