Today is February 29th, a bonus day on the calendar. Since Leap Day only happens once every four years, I wanted to come up with a unique activity to celebrate it. I searched dozens of websites for ideas. The vast majority of them were for kids, which made me sad. Aren't adults allowed to do silly things?
However, in my Internet exploration I did find one simple offbeat idea for commemorating the day. When I was at Target I bought a pack of Extra gum and quickly unwrapped it while the cashier was finishing the transaction. As he handed me my change I offered him a stick of "Extra gum for the extra day". I did the same thing with the person behind me in line. Both of them declined, but I brought a smile to their faces.
