Evidently he catches 200-lb halibuts and he wanted to know what I weigh. After I told him the weight range and that a more appropriate name would be Whale - he said I'd be a lunker. WTF is a lunker? I looked it up on the Merriam-Webster site: something large of its kind —used especially of a game fish. He needed to get back to work (so did I) and we both expressed an interest in future chatting...and his last message was something like "Chat with you later Halibut."
Normally this kind of thing would rub me the wrong way. I was reminded of "Finding Nemo" where the other tank fish dub him Sharkbait (ooh-ha ha!). But I find it endearing in an odd way. Does that make me crazy?
