simon was an inveterate（根深的） fisherman, well known for exaggerating the size of the one that got away. but there came a day when he actually caught two enormous flounders（挣扎，比目鱼） . he immediately invited a few friends over to dine, then tried to figure out how best to serve the fish. if i use both, he told his wife, it will seem ostentatious（招摇的） .
why not serve a piece of each? she suggested.
no, if i cut them up, nobody will believe i caught two giant flounders. simon racked his brain. then he had an idea.
