My Excuse For The Year, Apparently


So Amazon finally remembered that I ordered a Peanuts page-a-day calendar from them a month ago. And after thinking it over plenty they decided to cancel the order on the grounds that they couldn’t find a copy to send me.

But their e-mail wasn’t a complete pit of Funky Winkerbean-esque hopeless despair. They suggested that it might just be available yet, if I wanted to try ordering it on Amazon. For example, they figure there’s calendars on hand here:

The Peanuts 2018 Day-to-Day Calendar that Amazon couldn't get me because of the lack of availability. It lists 14 new from $7.65, and lists them as In Stock.
Yes, yes, I could get a wall calendar that shows the whole month at a time. But I had a moment of doubt about how they work and now I don’t dare approach them again. I mean, “I don’t remember what day it is. What if someone showed me a list of 31 days it could possibly be? Oh yes, now I’ve got it!” What’s going on there? Also, why isn’t this an app/e-Book you can just download and look at on the computer?

At this point I’m torn between actually trying to order a calendar or just taking 2007 out of storage and working with that again. But, you know, Amazon’s got this list of sellers on Amazon that they figure I can negotiate with that they can’t, what with their just being Amazon or whatever their issue is. I don’t know.

Still no idea what those used calendars were used for.

    1. I did check! The local bookstores didn’t get the Peanuts calendars, at least not that we found (and my love works at one a bit around the Christmas season, for the fun of it). But not to worry … there’s updates to come. Update isn’t a calendar joke but sounds like it should be.

  1. Wish I had been aware of the 2/13/78 Peanuts strip to refer to while you were going through your calendar crisis. I’m sure you’re already aware of its content but for those playing along at home…. CB goes through the house looking for his calendar, Sally points it out on a table. CB says, “Good I want to look at this week and know what to dread.”
