Yes, But...

Yes, ma'am, I understand that you consider your love for Garrison Keillor to be "transcendental," and we'll ignore the fact for now that transcendentalism is scarcely used in such a non-academic, pedestrian manner for describing love--except by those who are crazy; and I'm certainly willing to agree that celebrities have at times a fairly skewed sense of what constitutes an invasion of privacy or what crosses the line of appreciation; but...

Do you really think mailing someone an alligator's foot and dead beetles is a normal expression of gratitude?

(Yes, I can hear you now: "Well, the beetles were alive when I mailed them. Blame the post office for ruining that gift!")

Or wandering about outside a celebrity's home? at night? in the shadows?
