Did you guys watch the Leap Day episode of “30 Rock” last week? If you didn’t see it there are only a few things that you need to know for the purposes of this post: 1) The premise of the show is that February 29th is a holiday that encourages people to experiment and take chances. Things that happen on Leap Day don’t count, and 2) Leap Day William emerges from the Mariana trench every four years to trade children’s tears for candy.
And honestly, you really only needed to know that second thing because it makes me laugh.
Anyway, the show got me thinking. If Wednesday was for taking risks and things that I did that day really wouldn’t count, what would I do?
My first thought is that I would ditch the volunteer reading I do at the school every week, but that seemed both mean and boring.
So I came up with a few more foolhardy ideas of things that I would try if February 29th didn’t actually count.

Ah, who am I kidding? If nothing I did on Leap Day counted I would just stay in bed all day eating Doritos and playing Scrabble on my iPhone.
What would you do on Leap Day if it didn’t count?
