Roberta traded me this box of one bazilion cigarette coupons in exchange for Arndt Boe's tombstone
(which I was giving her in exchange for finding me the Worried Man painting in an alley and having the patience to run around Capitol Hill in a cab with me while I insisted that she remember exactly where she saw it so I could grab it. She has the patience of a saint.)
I'm not actually going to count them, but I can say with honest certainty that there are at least one bazilion. At the very least.

Okay, how old do these have to be to EXCLUDE Alaska? That's my only question.
Roberta promised me her written story at a later date as she had to run home today for a family situation. And since bARTer Sauce is just about the LEAST important thing in anyone's life (including mine) I said...uh, yeah, of course. Go. Go.
Here's what I remember about the story she told me:
- It had something to do with a friend who doesn't understand collage
- It had something to do with that friend's family member passing away and leaving them a car load of these vintage cigarette coupons
- Roberta said something about being able to wallpaper her entire apartment with them had she made that unfortunate decision
- And also, this box of one bazillion is just a mere scratch of the surface in terms of how many of these things Roberta got from her friend.
I'm sure there will be more to come later in a much more concise, readable, understandable format.
Update from The Sauce: this never came later in a much more concise, readable, understandable format.
