I like dolphins, but I'm not sure I would call them "persons".

When I was a kid, I loved the tv show "Flipper". I always wanted to live in Florida and swim with the dolphins.

With my luck, I would have one beer too many, go swimming with the "dolphins" and figure out only too late that they were sharks.

Hmmm . . . sounds like what happended with some of the "friends" I chose when I was young.
