We caught them all our last day. Honest. 10. You should have seen the one that got away. “The one that got away” is universally used by commercial and recreational fishermen alike. Come to think of it, I have never heard anyone say, “I lost the tiniest fish today. Really. It was no bigger than a guppy. It didn’t fight at all. ” 38 3 Even Keel I should say, no one tells a story quite as poorly as Alden does. He can’t tell a joke either, although it never stops him from trying. He blurts out the punch line prematurely, and works from there in reverse through the body of the joke.
