“We sat right behind you,” said the other one, shorter and funny. “We thought you were alone.”

“We just want to get some signatures,” said the tall guy, importantly lowering his voice. “I think Oliver is just about to come out this way.”
“I think so, too,” I noted. „But I am not waiting for him.” What a pain it must be for the artists, - I thought, - to be constantly followed by neurotic fans, who wait for the one glance and then worship and interpret it for the rest of their days.

The truth is, though, that I am indeed a great fan of Oliver Dragojević.
