Information that is used to draw attention away from the real facts of a situation is called a red / . If you want to express a feeling of surprise, you might cry holy / . Although we do not know why a / is holy. Once I went to a county fair and tried my luck with a game of chance. It was so easy. It was like shooting fish in a barrow. Then I went on the fastest, highest and most frightening ride, the roller coaster. At the end of the ride, I did not feel so well. My friend said I looked green around / .

I grew up in a small town, where everybody knew about my life. There were times when I thought I was living in a fish bowl. So I moved to Washington, where things were different. Now I take the train to work everyday during rush hour. When many other people travel to their jobs, sometimes the train is so crowded that we are packed in like sardines. Sardines are tiny fish that lie close to each other in cans. One man who works in my office is a cold fish. He is unfriendly and does not like to join us at office parties. Another man in my office likes to enjoy alcoholic drinks at parties. In fact, you might say he drinks like a fish. We need to help him stoping drinking.

Last week, my sister's car broke down as we were driving to our friends' ceremony. This is a fine kettle of fish, I said. Now we will be late.  My sister attends a small collage where she is one of the smartest students. She always wants to be a big fish in a small pond. Recently my sister broke up with her boyfriend. I told her not to worry she will find another one because there are plenty of other fish in the sea.
