Free Day

In an ideal world*, Leap Day would be like a loose balloon, thrillingly untethered from the rest of the calendar. In reality, though, it’s a gray Wednesday and everyone’s at work, like normal. But NPR has 24 ideas for putting the ap[p]eaL back in Leap Day, including “Listen to 11 great songs about time” and “take advantage of a February sales event — since the sale is lasting longer than usual.” NPR, you’re perfect.
