duck bum

guy I used to know, on explaining why he'd turned down a job
opportunity said that at his current position as programmer,
he was a "big fish in a small pond" and if he went to the
new job he'd be a "small fish in a BIG pond". I was thinking
about this and how it might be that I am less a fish and more
a duck. Floating on the top. Everyone else looking at my ass
and wondering what the hell to do with me. The world needs
more fish. Being a duck ain't getting me no where.
stop looking at my ass
