Trinket Box Purchase

I bought a giant, trinket wall-box at the thrift store today. You know, those big frames with a bunch of little cubby holes in the middle? They're often used to display glass figurines and tiny porcelain clowns.

Well this thing is giant and probably has over 75 cubby holes. The lady at the register told me she was thinking about buying it for herself but she didn't. She said she needed something to display her best marbles. She has over 15,000 marbles. Then she pointed to her forehead and said, "I'm not talkin' 'bout these marbles either! I'm talkin' 'bout real life, genuine marbles." I asked her where she keeps all her marbles. She said she keeps most of her marbles in the trunk of her car.

Then we went outside and she showed me her trunk marbles.

What the hell is going on?
