Happy Birthday

Leap - 103 Words
Lindsey Thompson

Who decided that on the one year out of every four, the year I celebrate my birthday—February 29th—that it would be called a “leap year”? Doesn’t it make more sense to say that every year you skip that date is the leap year, and the one year you DON’T skip it is the NON-leap year? Most people don’t care about it, but I’ve been concerned with the backwards nature of the phrase since my second birthday. Now, my fourth birthday, I am getting my first real driver’s license, and I’m just excited I get a day on the calendar this year to circle.
