Happy Leap Day! If today’s your birthday, you can get free treats at most stores/restaurants by just asking because you are SO SPECIAL. Give it a try at Mickey D’s and the cupcake store! And Happy Rare Birthday to you!
Old Irish legend has it that women may propose to men on this day-—and those men have to accept. [Ireland used to be fairly packed with guys hiding under every bush and in every pot o’ gold on Leap Day, I would assume.) Some legend-bearers add that if he declines, he must buy her 12 pairs of gloves to hide the naked ring finger. Of course, nowadays anyone can propose to anyone on ANY day. We live in enlightened times!
Today delays our paycheck (first and fifteenth of month) another day. Must live on cornbread and beans one more day. (hiccup) Also, the government fibbed about how they were going to deposit our tax refund by Feb 28. (sob) Still no refund. And I so wanted to get a new pair of socks!!
