Recently Marash Girl received a phone call from a woman who said that she had ordered a book from OldCornerBooks.com, but had received the wrong title. Marash Girl asked her name, the title and the condition of the book which the woman had ordered.
After chatting for quite a while, the woman -- let us call her Miriam -- realized that she had found Marash Girl's invoice in the book, but that that invoice was dated 2007. Apparently the fellow who had sold her the book had purchased the book from Marash Girl 7 years ago in new, very fine condition, that fellow had used the book (it was now very tattered) and sold it to Miriam without ever bothering to remove his original invoice. This we learned after 15 minutes of attempting to unravel the mystery.
But the true mystery was this: Why did the universe decide to bring these two folks together in a 15 minute conversation?
