Microfiction Bull

Susan from Stony River sets a weekly
Challenge Picture each Monday,
where a picture paints 140 characters, or even fewer

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.

  2. Ahhh, You are a woman after my own heart, dear Madeleine, as we are definitely coursing through the same vein when it comes to today's microfictiony! <-- Such fun! For a looksee at what I mean, click--> Here. Thanks!


  3. Oh, good one for the day! Created quite a picture in my mind!! Fun way to start my day! Hope you have a great week!


  4. Never you mind what the cattle man said, it's just too many bulls for comfort. Great!

  5. I wouldn't want all those bulls within a mile of my china shop if I were him.

  6. He didn't want to be a crashing boar - er bore - er - bull?!

  7. Hi! My first time on you fun blog and what a great microfiction story!!! Yay! I loved it!! Silly Isaac! Take care

  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!

  12. Yes big girl's blouse is very derogatory. :O)

  13. Well a guy has to protect his business. :)

  14. It surely would be a dangerous situation! :O)

  15. Haha! Losts of bulls- and that's funny that a "big girl's blouse" is derogatory! I've never heard it either ;p
