A Conversation at the Ball Park

After seeming disinterested for a long time, Amy cheers wildly after a home run. I give her a quizzical look.

Amy: (explaining) "I like home runs."
Kevin: (gives her another quizzical look)
Amy: "I just like cheering for things, okay?"
Kevin: "So it's not home runs, it's just things to cheer for?"
Amy: "Yeah."
Kevin: "Would you cheer for AIDS?"
Amy: "AIDS?"
Kevin: "Yeah, you know, you like to cheer for things. How about AIDS?"
Amy: "No."
Kevin: "What if AIDS was personified and hit a home run?"
Amy: "I don't think AIDS personified would be strong enough to hit a home run."
