Ruby: Here you are!
Ginger: …yes. It’s very strange – sometimes I actually am found in my own home.
Ruby: I have been looking everywhere for you!
Ginger: Did you try my own home?
Ruby: Yes. Just now. And here you are.
Ruby: Where were you Monday? I made a chicken casserole because I thought you’d be dropping by and then you didn’t and so Fly and I have been having re-heated chicken casserole lunches all week.
Ginger: We didn’t have a Monday this week.
Ruby: …yes, we did. It was that day that happened between Sunday and Tuesday.
Ginger: No, that day wasn’t real. You hallucinated it.
Ruby: Nope, that is not what happened. There was chicken casserole. And it was not a hallucination.
Ginger: If there was a Monday this week, then why did I stay in my pajamas all day and do housework as the mood struck me?
Ruby: I don’t know, but I’m going to guess it’s because your manager lets you slide a lot more than he should.
Ginger: While that is not outside the possibilities of truth, it’s not what happened. There was no Monday this week.
Ruby: Wait…Ginger, we’ve been over this before, I’m sure of it…this is a leap year.
Ginger: No, Ruby, it’s the Year of the Monkey. My acupuncturist’s husband told me.
Ruby: While that is true, it is also a leap year. There were 29 days in February this year.
Ginger: February does not have more than 28 days.
Ruby: Every four years, it does. But just one day more than usual.
Ginger: That’s not possible. Does October suddenly get 32 days this year? Does March get 34?
Ruby: …why would March get 34 days if we’re just adding one to each month?
Ginger: Well, obviously June doesn’t want to add a day to her busy schedule and she thought March was collecting for February, who’s always been –
Ruby: Stop. I don’t even know why I asked.
Ginger: It’s not like July was going to give up his extra day…
Ruby: Not listening. Crazy Filter is set to ‘On.’
Ginger: You did ask.
Ruby: And I have learned. So, you’re seriously denying February 29 happened?
Ginger: It wasn’t a real day. Until you start giving out extra days to all the months, February is just going to have to make do with what she has.
Ruby: You realize that by denying February 29 exists once every four years, you’re denying all the leap year babies out there a special gift of celebrating things like being the only 4-year-olds in the world who can legally drive.
Ginger: …that is pretty cool…
Ruby: And when they’re halfway through being 5-year-olds, they can drink legally in the United States.
Ginger: That sounds like an awesome superpower.
Ruby: Well, like any superpower, it still comes with – okay, I can’t take it. February and June are girls, but July is a boy??
Ruby: Is there a reason?
Ginger: Is ‘Because’ a reason?
Ruby: …I have to get my Crazy Filter checked…
