I loved the way Adam dealt with Joe in this story. Since Joe wouldn't listen to reason, Adam let him learn by experience...but he was right there in case Joe needed help.
I like the title, too! The bull's name is certainly deceptive. Interestingly enough, there's a weather phenomenon in the Pacific called "El Nino" that happens around Christmas (hence its name); there's a myth in California that "El Nino" causes storms and flooding. Having lived in California for several years, when I read the title of this story I immediately thought of big storms!
Sometimes Joe let his pride or anger prompt him into doing foolish, risky things. Glad you enjoyed the story. And I am familiar with the weather phenomena of El Nino and how it fects hurricane formation in the Atlantic, my side of the country.
