Sadie Hawkins Day, February 29, by Eric J. Smith

“I can ask Fred to marry me today, right?”

“Sorry, babe. You have to wait until November—that’s when Sadie Hawkins Day is. Only the Brits can legitimately celebrate the role reversal on leap day.”

“Oh, well. Fred’s out of town, anyway.”

“Knowing Fred, he’d point out that Sadie Hawkins was only a character in a comic strip that’s no longer in existence.”

“You’re right. He would say something like that. As a matter of fact, that sort of annoying character trait gives me pause.”

“Let it brew, sweetie. Maybe by November you’ll have dumped him and met someone else.”
