Gene Weingarten's latest article in the Washington Post magazine really made me think. To me, tomorrow (leap day) is a lot like the extra hour we get in the Fall during the change from Daylight Saving Time back to standard time. It's a bonus. A free day. A day to do things that maybe we wouldn't have done if it were a "regular" day.
Like the man in the article, I want to do something cRaZee tomorrow. Something like pull my kids out of school. Oh wait, I don't have any kids. Okay, skip work. Well...I probably shouldn't do that since it is my last day before maternity leave. Also like the man in the article, I am Mormon and therefore won't be, "drinking alcohol or getting wild." (Gosh, this being Mormon sure seems to take the fun out of things!)
So since I can't skip work, get sloshed, or go wild, what will I do??? Given my current "delicate condition," most likely it will end up being finding a comfortable spot on the couch and not moving since it's hard to find that comfortable spot. But what will you do???
Who knows? Maybe I'll go just a touch wild and have some rice krispie treats. Now there's something I don't do every day.
