Unleash Your Inner Wilde Thing

wildeman.jpgUnsurprisingly, Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wilde is not with us today to celebrate his 159th birthday (and if he were, given such an extreme elderly age chances are he'd not be very much fun at a party and couldn't even eat any of the cake). This isn't to say that the celebrated playwright, author, and poet was normally boring at social events when he was alive; he was far from it, in fact. Snappy and fabulous in his dress sense and wit, Wilde was quite the character in his time. His life was tragically cut short at the age of 46, unjust imprisonment and disease having left him destitute. But rather than make this day about sadness, why not instead make it a celebration? So put on your favorite frilly shirt, paint a Picture of Dorian Gray, debate the real Importance of Being Earnest, and make sure no one thinks you're a Woman of No Importance.
