Word of the Day: día extra
Translation: extra day
Pronunciation: dthee-ah ex-trrrah

This is a leap day. Things shouldn’t count today. So do whatever you want. Tell ‘em we said so.

They shouldn’t even call it a normal weekday name. This should be called “Extra Day,” this year, falling between Tuesday and Wednesday. No work, everything is free. Tomorrow we’ll start up again with Wednesday.

The Romans could stop their calendar whenever they wanted. True story, sort of. And here we are with space stations and what not and we can’t even change the days we made up in the first place! Progress, sheese.
