Frankie: A little late on the bandwagon but sure enough both Bella and I have watched the much anticipated film, Twilight. I enjoyed it, however not as much as Bella who is now completely infatuated with Edward and Robert Pattinson in general. She is now embarking on reading the entire book series and has purchased the whole set to avoid stock shortage disappointment.
As I witness Bella fall evermore into her haze of celebrity infatuation I ask myself, have I ever gotten so caught up in a person or character to the point of obsession. Why do we find ourselves doing this?? Day dreaming about a person, their character, how they are, where they might be??? Are we so curious about this person and feel drawn to their story because of some hyped up media frenzy, publicity blitz that makes them seem so perfect, dreamy without any possible flaws?
Has anyone else become infatuated with a long time idol?? Did it subside, who was it and how did you feel on self reflection?
