This is embarassing to admit but I actually stored the 'month' value for a record as a string in the database (January, February, March...). The month portion is the only part of the date the record requires, but it was still a bad decision that haunts me to this day.

Instead of simply having an object convert a simple integer value to the string for display purposes when required I'm left with this mess. Do a sort based on month? Alphabetical doesn't work. I swear I don't know what I was thinking - or rather, not thinking as the case may be.

Sheesh.
