Leaping Along

February has always been something of a rip off month. It's a lot shorter yet my cell phone costs the same, rent payments are same--anything billed on a monthly rate costs the same yet you lose two days. Then, miraculously, every four years they give us a year which has an extra day. and they also throw in a Presidential election to make up for it. Now, we all know we use the Gregorian calendar, which was implemented by Pope Gregory XIII a long time ago.  The Chinese calendar is much older.  But it's the Gregorian one most of us use. 

Well, it's not enough. I want more. they should give us, or at least me, money every four years to make up for some of the February rip offs. Keep in mind, even Leap Year is still short and they're still ripping us off--just not quite as much.
