"My mother <i>planned</i> for me to be born via Cesarean section on Leap Day. I'm still not sure if this was a good or a bad thing. I went to a Waldorf School in California with another Leap Dayer, Michael Slater. On our ""1st"" birthday, the paper came and took our picture together in front of our cake with one candle on it. They made me kiss him. I think we were both embarrassed. I met another Leap Dayer in high school, and the woman at my local DMV always remembers me because her nephew was born on 2/29. Last year, 2000, the Leap Day birthday emails were overwhelming but fun. I think the funniest question we all have to deal with is, ""So when are you going to have your birthday this year?"" One year I decided on September 19, and went and got a free meal on that day at a restaurant that offered free birthday meals. When they saw my driver's license and saw that it wasn't a Leap year, they took pity on me... "
