Every four years we get bothered with an extra day in February. As a rule, I hate February. It's cold, it's dreary, and between seeing that rodent check out his shadow and having to give up something for lent for some of you, it's just not a fun month. Oh yeah, there's Valentine's Day, but some people get so upset about not having someone to spend it with (our kids) or expecting us to buy things for V-Day (our kids) that it ruins it for everyone else. And don't even get me started on the jacked up prices on flowers and chocolate on the days before V-Day.
So what do the wise calendar people do? They decide to make our lives worse by adding that extra day on in FEBRUARY, the worst month to do this. I think it has to do with February being the shortest month, but did they ever think of the reason for it being short? People HATE February (at least I do).
I think leap year's day should be in June or something, so we can enjoy the warmth for one extra day, even if it is just a mental thing.
What do you think?
Have a great week!
