Henri’s restaurant was badly in need of a makeover and Carrie offered her services as she was an up and coming designer.
Shark Steaks were his specialty so she decided to build her theme around that.
Sadly the automatons on the walls overhead didn’t go down too well, and Shez Shark soon became nothing more than a coffee shop.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. I see scary killer sharks, deceased or no deceased, aren’t all that especially appetizing?

  2. Sadje says:

    Decorating blunder!

  3. Carol Anne says:

    spooky feel to this one di! I loved it though! xoxo

  4. Iain Kelly says:

    I can see why it might have put people off their food! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. A well written slice of life. A shark coffee house certainly sounds like it would have its place. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. At least he was able to salvage something. I bet its the best coffee shop in town.

  7. Dear Di,

    In half the words you’ve told a whole story. I guess people don’t like to see the face of what they’re eating. Well done.



  8. Yeah, they’re quite creepy, aren’t they?

  9. I’m glad I didn’t use Carrie’s services when I designed my restaurant!

  10. draliman says:

    It’s hard to eat a shark when there’s a realistic automated shark’s head hovering right overhead ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Dale says:

    Let us just say that she took the whole thing a tad too literally!

  12. granonine says:

    Well, at least it was a novel idea. She should get credit for that ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. James McEwan says:

    I guess people just didn’t want to be stared at by the Shark while eating a fish steak meals.

  14. msjadeli says:

    And so it goes… Good flash fiction, Di.
