Today’s date, February 29, is one on which women are traditionally permitted by the Patriarchy (TM) to propose marriage to their (male) partners. The best plan is for men in relationships with women, but not married, to make themselves scarce for the day. On no account should they meet or communicate with their significant others.
But what of the unfortunate men who cannot escape contact with the special women in their lives? They must at all costs remember Paul Elam’s point about a measure of a man’s mental health being his willingness to say “No” to women. So the conversation might go like this:
She: “Darling, we’ve been dating for many years, isn’t it time we got married?”
He: “I’m sorry, toots, I haven’t caught the news yet today. Did hell freeze over?”
