The Big Fish

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.

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.
