Interesting idiom, ‘fish out of water’. I picture a fish flapping, breathless, on the deck of a boat or in a pail, ready to die. But really that’s way too drastic. It’s more, ‘oh crap, what am I doing here? I don’t belong. I feel so small’.

That was a nice visual – a talking fish 😂
That’s an interesting visual Claire. You’re absolutely right, that’s what fish look like when they’re out of water. I never thought of the idiom that way….
