Two bulls, Larry and Tony, were walking down the street trying to decide what to do.

"How about we go to the rodeo again and heckle the cowboys from the stands?" Larry asked.

"Nah," Tony replied. "I'm bored with that."

"How about we have dinner at the steakhouse?" Larry asked, grinning.

"Will you stop making that joke, please?" Tony said.

"So, what do you want to do?"

Tony thought for a moment.

"Let's go stand outside that store and see if we can scare the owner to death."

Larry agreed, so they headed across the street to the China shop.

    Haha! Love it! If that’s what you produce when you’re sleepy, Christopher, then we’ve got a treat in store (not a china shop though) when you’re wide awake!

    Thank you, Richard. Sleepless nights are not uncommon for me.

    Thanks, Neville. I heard the old saying of "a bull in a china shop" earlier in the evening so that's what prompted it. I hadn't heard that saying in a long time. My dad used to say that to me.

    It brought back the memory of hearing, "Boy, quit runnin' 'round here like a bull in a china shop!"

    Yeah, that happens a lot with my drabbles. I'll hear someone say a word or a phrase and then it's off to the races!

    Not intentionally, Jamie, but I do remember a Far Side with some bulls on their hind legs in trench coats and fedoras in a china shop now that you mention it. I just got inspired by hearing that phrase again. And my brain these days takes everything literally.
