For his provocative question this week Fandango asks
In your opinion, is it better to be a big fish in a small pond or a small fish in a big pond? Or perhaps a big fish in a big pond? Why do you feel that way?
For someone who creates a tidal wave when she gets in the bath, a big fish in a small pond is probably not a good idea.
And as I have a pretty poor sense of direction, a small fish in a big pond is likely to get lost.
Being a big fish in a big pond sounds a good bet, but then there are always likely to be bigger fish with even bigger attitudes and the inevitable punch up as to who has right of way, the most beautiful fins, or who is going to have whom for dinner.
There are enough sharks out there to take on the big fish, so I guess I would like to be a little fish in a small private pond where there are plenty of places to hide as I hate confrontation of any description.
Just got to remember to keep out of the way of visiting herons.
