Fishy Circumstances

A day which is not today

I went to the BL today to look at a manuscript which turned out to have been dedicated either today or tomorrow*.

I still do not know which, and have been treasuring that liminality all day. I did ask a few people over the course of the day, but none of them knew whether the nones of May are on the seventh or the ninth.**

* albeit c. five hundred years ago.
** I will go look it up now that I have an internet.
