“Hey! I’m Tootie Landry and this is what I found out today!

We all know that February 29th is a date that usually occurs every 4 years and is called “Leap Day.” And this year, we get that extra day. So I’ve been thinking, what can I do on this day?

I could do what Eli Manning said, “I’m going to Disney World.” Or, I could drive really fast on Johnston Street and tell everyone else to “Go ahead, make my day!”

Being I have an extra day, I could finally write those letters I’ve been putting off. Like the letter to Dancing with the Stars—asking “why haven’t I been picked?” After all I am a “Dancing Queen!” And I’ve got to write a thank you note to the networks for finally ending the Whitney Houston stories. Stop in the name of love!
Regardless of what I do, at least I get to delay filing my taxes by another 24 hours!

And another thing, “Leap Day” is such a boring name for being a unique day. It should be called “I’ll be back day.”
So whatever you decide to do on your extra day in 2012, I hope it’s fun!
And I’m sure by now some of you are secretly saying to yourself, “ Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn!”

And I’m Tootie Landry and this is “Not Necessarily the News!”
