Leaping beyond Leap Day

Today was Leap Day.

It leaves me spinning to realize that even with the extra day of Leap Day, we have already come to the close of the second month in 2012. Even with the extra day of February 29th, tomorrow is March. Wow!

I've often felt that Leap Day put an unfair burden on anyone born on this day. Of course, this is primarily connected with the silliness of celebrating birthdays, but still, when asked about one's birth date, it must be awkward to have to explain that one was born on February 29th of whichever Leap Year it occurred.

Not a big deal, I suppose, but still something that bounces around in a mind that is always pondering something or other.
