Following our successful bout of fish related stories at writing group, take 'the dumbfounded eyes of minnows' and run with it, Genista told us; so we did.
Later that week I was chatting to my nan (the wise one or yoda as i like to call her) and I was harping (or should that be carping) on about how some people had booked flights for 1p, yes 1p! To which my nan replied, 'a sprat to catch a mackerel'.
'A SPRAT TO CATCH A MACKEREL'
Make a story out of that one if you dare....
