Marcel: What is this on your wall?
Fiona: It’s my tribute to Del Gordon, my favorite player.
Marcel: This isn’t a tribute. It’s a shrine!
Fiona: It’s not a shrine. I just have a few pictures of him taped on my wall.
Marcel: You have poster- size pictures of him covering three walls of your room. This goes beyond being a fan. You’re obsessed with him.
Fiona: No, I’m not obsessed. I admit that I’m a little infatuated with him, but it’s a healthy kind of adulation.
Marcel: You’ve definitely gotten carried away.
Fiona: Just a little. I’m devoted to watching him play in every game and I try to find out as much as I can about him, but it’s because I admirehim. It’s not like I’m stalking him or something.
Marcel: Then why do you have all of this equipment?
Fiona: That’s in case there’s a sighting of him in this city.
Marcel: A sighting?
Fiona: Yes, there’s a network of fans that keeps tabs on him and if I learn that he’s in town, I can try to get a photo with him.
Marcel: And what are those handcuffs for?
Fiona: I only have those in case he doesn’t cooperate.
Marcel: You’re right. Your infatuation is completely healthy!
