Today is the day when We celebrate Mr. William Shakespeare’s birth, back in 1564. If it wasn’t today, it was close to it. Maybe there was other stuff going on, or his mother just wasn’t up to finding a registrar. Sometimes, close is close enough.
Mr. Shakespeare had an intriguing life; whole chunks of his timeline are missing, and after all this time, it’s unlikely We will ever fill in the blanks. He became the most famous playwright to ever live anywhere, so his time off must have been good to him, one way and another.
Maybe he spent his time as an apprentice, learning Penmanship. Who can say?
