“Consider the wife of an ardent angler. All her husband talks about is fish, fish, fish. He dreams of fish. He even smells slightly of fish. His necktie is embroidered with trout flies, and his tie clasp is a miniature rod and reel. His highball glasses are decorated with leaping rainbows or bass. The framed still-life over the mantle, which his wife painted in art class, has been replaced by a stuffed tarpon. Instead of carrying his children’s pictures in his wallet, he has a snapshot of the twenty-pound striper he caught off the Cape last summer.”
