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!
