Charlotta got Marlene a subscription to a magazine about something that did not interest Marlene, but Marlene considered it a wonderful present. How come??

Flushed with success....:o)

Was there a free gift offering with the magazine? An advice column that helped Marlene? Did the magazine tailor to a particular hobby or interest? Was the magazine marketed specifically at women?
Is Marlene in a relevant relationship? Is Marlene's reaction to the present just as Charlotta planned? Or was she surprised at the reason Marlene was so pleased with it?

Are Marlene & Charlotta related? friends? Colleagues?

Was Marlene selling magazines, so that Charlotta helped her with some kind of fundraiser?

Would any magazine serve the same purpose? If not, would its size be relevant? some other physical feature? or anything written in the magazine?

Is there some sort of secret/lateral message in the magazine?

Does Charlotta know Marlene personally? Vice versa? Relevant?
Are they from the same country? Relevant?

It seems you deleted part of my question, Nimue.

So is there just one specific magazine which can serve the purpose?

So is there just one specific magazine which can serve the purpose? No, I said that NOT JUST ANY magazine could serve the purpose. That doesn't mean that only one magazine could. Any magazine with A CERTAIN FEATURE could serve the purpose. I'm not sure how many magazines have this feature.

OK,OK, don't shoot at the pianist, he is doing his best ;-))

Let's focus on the feature then. So it is noishly physical, correct? And the topic is irrelevant, right?

What about language? Pictures? Something which goes with the magazine? Are these relevant?

Does the magazine accept letters from readers? Does it have advertisements? Is the number of pages relevant? Would this situation work if Charlotta had simply bought a copy of the magazine at the store and given it to Marlene? Is their gender especially relevant? Is it something biological about women?

Could it be any of these magazines: National Geographic? Newsweek? Scientific American? Time?

Is the skill something you can learn? Practice and get better? Does it produce a tangible result? Can one "win" or "be the best" at the skill? If so, does Charlotta want to tell marlene that she can: do it? Be the best at it? Win a competition? Is the exact title of the magazine relevant? Is it a well known magazine?

So it's not something that one can learn or get better at: Is it a bodily function (meant in the most general, least dirty sense)? Or is it some kind of state of being (for example, owning a certain object)?

The magazine has a feature that either gives advice on or requires a specific physical activity ( to enjoy that feature ), correct?

Is this feature:
verbal?
visual( color or shape recognition, for example )?
audio ( CD with each issue, for example )?
olfactory ( "scratch-and-sniff" )?
a puzzle or a competition, perhaps?

Are these relevant:
astrology?
predictions?
meditation?

The magazine has a feature that either gives advice on noor requires a specific physical activity ( to enjoy that feature ), correct? Well, it's a pretty general "activity." See above.

Is this feature:
verbal? no
visual no( color or shape recognition, for example )?
audio ( CD with each issue, for example ) no
olfactory ( "scratch-and-sniff" )? no
a puzzle or a competition, perhaps? no

Are these relevant:
astrology? no
predictions? yes
meditation? no

Was Charlotta mentally OK? yesWas Marlene? yes

******* SPOILER *************
Charlotta got Marlene a 3-year magazine subscription as a 97th birthday present. A 3-year-magazine subscription is a terrific present for a very old person (preferably over 90) or anyone who has a life-threatening illness but is optimistic about it
