Because you’re boring.

Children of a certain age tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Eventually they’re taught not to hurt someone’s feelings. They gambol through their early years and we emphasise the importance of telling the truth no matter what. They do exactly that and we admonish and correct when their truth hurts […]

Give a man a fish,end a man with fish

“Give a man a fish, he eats for a day. Teach a man how to fish, he eats for a lifetime.”

Did you ever give anyone a fish?

Without asking first?

You can’t just go up to men giving out fish.

Even worse, did you ever give a fish just to a man?

You’ve heard of woman right?

Don’t you think some of them might want a fish?


I gave out a fish once.  Teaching was not an option.

There was no way I was going to learn to fish first – I needed a quick fix to feel good about myself.

If I had only read the statistics first.

The primary reason men turn into stalkers – FISH.


I Handed out the fish.

My life became an absolute nightmare, this slightly smelly man following me asking for fish.

Although he may have been asking for the time, as I’m a bit deaf.

To be fair, I’m not even sure it was the same man.


But I found a solution with my second fish giveaway.

The Fugu fish  : Staving hunger and guaranteeing death. Unless it’s cooked properly.

It normally takes three years training in Japan before you’re allowed to prepare it.

People generally consider the liver the tastiest part,but it is also the most poisonous. It can result in full paralysis while you remain fully conscious. not my first choice if it was my own death, but for a male fish stalker – what choice did I have?

I have made a particularly bad living at being the Jack of no trades, so

why not add cooking poisonous fish badly to my list of talents?

So I upped my good juju  with my free fugu and  felt…

not quite on it like a bonnet but more where’s it’s at like a hat.

One mans fish is another mans poison
