Twelve years ago today – or was it 16? – I got the grand idea that, being as it was Leap Day, I ought to do something unique. Something that I had never done before and that I would only do every four years on the 29th of February. It was a fine idea.
Trouble was, I couldn’t think of anything that I wanted to do that I could up and do at the spur of the moment, and, in addition, that I would only want to do every four years. I mean, what if I ended up really liking the activity? How could I wait another four years to do it again?
I never thought of anything.
So now, every four years, when “Leap Day” rolls around, I think, “What fun, unique, leap-ish thing should I do today?”
Any good ideas for me?
