I'm watching Frasier season 10, and enjoying it greatly.
Frasier is explaining to his father the difference between "ramekins" and "tapas dishes". And I'm wondering, are there really people who live like this? Use immense amounts of time and money and concern on what seems to me to be absolutely trivial differences in the products they buy and the culture they enjoy. (Or "enjoy", perhaps.) Who has four different kinds of forks and cares deeply if anybody uses the "wrong" kind of fork. Who will spend thousands on little objects d'art because of the prestige more than the aesthetics. For whom all these little cultural minutia are tremendously important.
I suppose they exist, but I've never met any in real life. Do you know anybody like that?
