Fleece You In September

You know what I find weird? (You find something weird? No, pray tell… what do you find weird?)

I’ll tell you – calendars that begin in September. (That’s it?) Yes, calendars that starts with September… of the previous year that is. Who needs this?

It can’t be for the benefit for those of us who use calendars… we have one already. It just means that one of the calendars, either the one already on the wall or the one waiting to be, will have 4 months not used. Such a waste.

Nor can it be for the benefit of those who don’t use calendars at all. They wouldn’t buy it in the first place. Non-calendar uses are stubborn like that. Even if one of their friends were to convince them to hop on the calendar bandwagon, it’s still not needed. I mean, they’ve already gotten along well enough without one – they can wait a few more weeks.

No one suddenly finds them self without calendar. They’ve got a whole year to prepare.

I’ve been looking around for a new calendar for a bit – stationary stores, department stores, and even those odd calendar kiosks in the mall; the average price at all of them is about sixteen bucks. (So what?)

Well look at the months covered by a September start calendar: September, October, November, December, January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, December. Sixteen months. Coincidence? I think not.

Ok all you crooked calendarsmiths… we’re on to you. Cut it out. The years are long enough as they are!
