Sharks Or Minnows Anyone

Sharks Or Minnows Anyone

I just returned from a week's vacation on the Crystal Coast of North Carolina.  Gorgeous weather, emerald green waves, white sands and perfect company, my family!  And then mid week this guy washes in from the great Atlantic:  Image title

A genuine Black Tip Shark, we were in awe! And frankly, a little spooked--a big fella hauled him out of the ocean, the shark was dead, never a threat to any of us, but he drew a big crowd and we all touched his smooth gray skin and even opened his mouth to see his "jaws" and rows of teeth.  He had a large hook in his mouth and either the fisherman cut the line or the shark broke it with sheer muscle.  An amazing creature!  I couldn't help but think about the popular show Shark Tank!  To be considered a "shark" you are "self-made", financially wealthy and always looking for the next deal.  Barbara Corcoran,, is the self made real estate agent on the show.  As a Realtor, I have never considered myself shark-like.  I'd rather be seen as the cute minnow, dutifully swimming around the pond and not upsetting anyone.  Minnow's get eaten!  Perhaps I am more shark-like:  hunting for the right house for my client, working deals late into the night, applying pressure when needed, cutting through challenges?  Not sure the metaphor works---I saw porpoises, too!
