I don't even know Arlene, but apparently she has money for me. Why is that, do you suppose?
Maybe she owes me money from way back. I don't think I ever knew any Arlenes, but maybe she changed her name. Or possibly Arlene bought an IOU from somebody I know. Could it be an old gambling debt? I see that she operates on both coasts - LA and Allendale, New Jersey. But I've never been to either of those places. Or gambled.
But this mystery is solved merely by reading the rest of the ad. Arlene just wants me to sell some of her California Christmas cards for her. Santa in shorts, I guess, roller-skating in Venice. Or a bunch of elves coming out of Starbucks with iced ventis. Palm trees with tinsel.
Arlene also sells "everyday cards." Whatever could they be? IOUs, perhaps.
