"Do you truly think Jeanine is fish-faced?
"Absolutely. And believe me, I've had enough experience with ladies to know fish-faced when I see it"
What does fish-faced mean?
Why he said "to know fish-faced when I see it" instead of to know a fish faced.....?
Thanks a lot.
I was asking shouldn't there an 'a' before fish faced because it's not defined.
He said "to know fish faced when I see it"
