Microfiction Bull

China shop owner, Isaac was adamant that bulls would not step over his threshold, even though the cattle man called him a big girl’s blouse. (139 characters with spaces)

  1. A bull in a China shop would not end well.

  8. Isaac should let them in, with the express understanding (in writing of course) that if they or their bulls break it, they buy it.

  9. Is "big girl blouse" an insult of some kind?

  10. LOL ... looks like your big girl's blouse doesn't cross the pond Madeleine! I thought it was great! :Dom

  11. Yeah, insults don't work with kings. Does "big girl's blouse" refer to a big-breasted air-head of a girl? I think it must be a British saying, as I've never heard it in the US.

    I like these MMs with the bull-in-a-china-shop references!
