Flounder is delicious. I think the much smaller sand dabs are even more delicious.
So, are you married? To the fishmonger’s daughter? Personally, I wouldn’t object to the flounder or the lobster, but the physical appearance and smell of my date might turn me off…dead fish, axle grease, diesel fuel? If, however, the date was to accompany him on a fishing trip, I’d might be up for it.
