2064. If tomorrow…

– If this year was a leap year then tomorrow would be a leap day.

– But it’s not a leap year so tomorrow’s not a leap day.

– I never said it was. I just said if this year was a leap year then tomorrow would be a leap day.

– I heard you the first time. And it’s not a leap day tomorrow.

– I read where women can propose marriage on a leap day.

– I don’t know if that’s true.

– I just said it was. Don’t you believe me?

– I simply said I didn’t know if it was true or not.

–  It’s always the same. You don’t believe a single thing I say. You don’t believe anything unless you read it yourself. You’ll believe anyone blabbing on in social media before you believe anything I say.

– That’s probably not true.

– Anyway don’t expect me to propose tomorrow because even though women can propose on a leap day I have no intention of doing that.

– Tomorrow’s not a leap day. It’s not a leap year. I’m not expecting a proposal.

– Oh God! You’re so unreasonable.

          Although, I believe, it is possible to have a conversation with a sea lion.!
          John I’ve been meaning to email you these last few days as I have been pondering your poems in THE anthology. Will get to it soon I hope! (And I don’t know why I missed your snowdrops in early February).

            Sounds intriguing Bruce. It’s always good to hear from you, but I’d love to hear that you might be able after all to join in the online anthology launch and read one of your own poems.
            Well, I’m off to bed here in England. Have a good day down there! J

    What’s in a name? that which we call a rose
    By any other name would smell as sweet.
    The eternal winter of discontent though
    Struts and frets down the endless street.

    (With apologies to Shakespeare, William.)
