A girl looked calmly at a caller one evening and remarked, "George, as it is leap year . . . "
The caller turned pale.
"As it is leap year," she continued, "and you've been calling regularly now four nights a week for a long, long time, George, I propose . . . "
"Grace, I'm not in a position to marry on my salary," George interrupted hurriedly.
"I know that, George," the girl pursued, "and so, as it is leap year, I thought I'd propose that you lay off and give some of the more eligible fellows a chance."
