When We All Take The Leap

leapdayEven the most cautious person will take a leap today. It’s inevitable. I looked it up and apparently the earth takes exactly 365.25 days to go around the sun. Whoever figured out the orbit situation could have named that extra year and extra day anything when you think about it. Bonus Year would have been cool.

  1. I would liked to have been born 2/29 in any year so I could only have a birthday every 4 years. I think I’d be close to 13 something about now. Hmmm, maybe that’s not such a good idea. Forget that, unless I could have my old 13 year old body. Oh no, I was way too skinny and painfully shy.
    BUT if I could know then what I know now, maybe I wouldn’t make the same bad mistakes. It’s possible but do I really want to be a 14 year old these days? Think not, I’ll be happy with the way things are now.

    • I taught a CPR class yesterday, Mom, and one of my students was thinking like you. She asked “since we’re getting certified on leap day, it should be good for 4 years right?” They know their certifications have to be renewed every TWO years. Everybody laughed.

  2. Great minds!
