Maybe the secret to staying young is to celebrate your birthday only once every four years, on the last day of February in a leap year. Did you know there is a word for people born on February 29th? ... leaplings. I didn’t know that until today.
Here are some celebrity leaplings from the past and present:
singer and TV host Dinah Shore
1940s band leader Jimmy Dorsey,
race car driver Mario Andretti,
actor Antonio Sabato, Jr.,
actor Dennis Farina,
and the only leapling I’ve ever met, my friend and co-worker Maureen McLain, who celebrates her, uhh, 9th birthday on February 29th this year.
Happy Birthday to all!
