    I think you could bound down the stairs in a bad mood- to get your pistol, for instance.

    I may have bad moods, but I don't have a pistol.

    No need to bound, then!

    My mom's favorite Phyllis Diller (American stand-up comic) line: "I came down the staircase in a stunning two-piece outfit. Peds."
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
