It usually happens something like this. In a passing conversation the topic of leap years comes up. You think to yourself "I wonder when the last leap year was? I should Google that." A few weeks go by and then it pops into your mind out of nowhere. You go to your computer, pull up Google and search "leap years".
A sight catches your eye that has ideas for fun ways to celebrate leap year. One of the suggestions is baking leap year cookies, so you click on the recipe which takes you to a cooking website. You scroll down to read the comments posted beneath the recipe when you spot a recommendation for a great home and garden website that has more cookie recipes.
You wander over to that website and get interested in an article about current trends in window treatments. Realising that your own window treatments are hopelessly outdated by at least six months or so, you start searching "easy no-sew valances". The instructions tell you that you'll need fusible webbing, which you don't have, so you decide that buying pre-made valances will be a better option and start perusing online drapery websites.
You find something that would look perfect in your kitchen, but the fabric will clash with your current paint color. You wonder if should repaint the kitchen and decide a new color might change your whole outlook on life. Twenty minutes later you find yourself at the hardware store looking at paint swatches when you come across a lovely shade of green called "Lilly Pad". The name makes you think of frogs, who travel from lily pad to lily pad by leaping, which makes you think of leap year. And then you think to yourself, "When is the next leap year? I should Google that."
