Leap Day

Posted by Matty

Every four years, there is an extra day, February 29. It’s kinda like a bonus. Woo!

When is the last time that you’ve had a truly free day? A day out of the blue, just tacked on to the end of February? -My guess is that it’s been about four years.

I don’t know why I haven’t thought about this before. I remember being at the bar during Daylight Saving time and partying extra hard, because we “gained an hour.” This is way more than an hour, this is a full 24 of ’em… in a row. And, unlike Daylight Saving, nobody is going to steal it back (spring ahead). Yes folks, February 29 is absolutely free-no strings attached.

I am still trying to figure out what I am going to do on Sunday. The obvious choice would be to do something that involves jumping (or leaping, if you will), but I am not obvious (and I’m lazy… jumping sounds like a lot of work).

You should think of something different to do as well. If you read this after the fact, don’t feel too bad that you frittered away a free day. Remember there will be another one soon.
