Bloggie friends! 2012 is a Leap year so here is my leap year anecdote.
A few leap years back when I was so young and ever so foolish, I won a leap year bet at work by marching to my male manager and asking him to marry me.
Luckily said male manager turned me down but not after he had an apoplectic fit of laughter bringing on his indigestion and causing him to take the afternoon off to see his doctor - but let’s not dwell on that.
Now as I look up Leap Year on Wiki I discover these amazing facts (as yet unverified and unsubstantiated so I deny all liability for false information) that if the man turned down such a proposal made by a woman during a leap year, they were liable to:
1) Pay her £1.
2) Buy her 12 pairs of gloves.
3) Or fabrics for a skirt.
Anyway! I still think I got the best out of this as the bet I won was for a pint and pub dinner!
Charlie says: I see the New Year in by taking it easy.
Happy leaping 2012 everyone!
