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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.
