What's the deal with Leap Year proposals, then?
We did some research and think it may be more exciting than meets the eye...
So we did a little research and discovered that it's all about February 29 - the "bonus" day that we get every leap year. The idea is that because the day wasn't featured on any calendars, it didn't have the same laws as every other day. Essentially this suggests that anyone can do anything on February 29. Which raises the question - why is proposing to your boyfriend the only thing that we're encouraged to do on this day?
Let's recap: it's a day without the same laws as every other day. Are we missing something here? Surely it's the perfect opportunity to break the rules a bit... mix things up? Here at Itchy we plan to make a concerted effort to behave in an absolutely ridiculous manner come February 29.
Screw proposals, we're talking pizza for breakfast, stilettos in the supermarket, singing on the Tube, bombing in the swimming pool and eating pick n' mix straight out of the tub at our local Woolworths-substitute.
DISCLAIMER: Obviously we won't be taking this too far, as we'd quite like to survive the day. For example, we won't be drinking and driving, committing any robberies or attempting to defy gravity (Sadly the laws of physics HAVE to be obeyed at all times. Bummer.) but that said, we will be attempting to push the boundaries.
Go on... you know you want to.
