BONUS!

So today is the day.

It’s that day that only comes around every four years.

It’s the day that means it’s an election year.

It’s the day that completely screws up the rhyme “Thirty days hath September / April, June, and November…”

It’s the day on which, if you’re born on it, you could stay officially young your entire life.

It’s an extra day.

A bonus day.

So why the hell did they have to tack it on to the shortest month of the year during the coldest season of them all?

Leap day.

Big fucking deal!!!

It’s just one more day of winter to me.

Thanks a lot, calendar!

Anyway, happy Leap Day everyone.

  1. I always learned the rhyme as:

    “Thirty days hath September,
    April, June, and November;
    All the rest have thirty-one,
    Except February which has just twenty-eight,
    But in a Leap Year it gets an extra date.”

    That rhyme doesn’t get screwed up at all by Leap Year.

    P.S. Should I mention that today we have clear blue skies and temps about 80˚-82˚?
