Ears of the Walls
March 13, 2009
Be careful what you say; the walls have ears.
This is a common English phrase, supposedly first recorded in 1620. It is said to come from a story about Dionysius of Syracuse (430-367 b.c.), who had an ear-shaped cave cut and connected between the rooms of his palace so that he could hear what was being said from another room.
When boys get together, they talk dirty.
So I’ve heard.
I’ve never observed the actual dirty conversation.
I didn’t know that they actually talk about people they know.
But don’t they know that the walls have ears?
That the walls can talk?
That the person talked about will eventually got word, and be pissed like hell?
Don’t they know that?
Don’t they use the brains God has given them? The common sense?
Then what exactly is the difference between them and primates?
A lot of people tells me to let it go. Try saying “It’s no big deal”, and I can just claw your eyes out. I am definitely not a saint, I sometimes can be a bitch, but I will not be talked about as if I’m the whore of the Babylon.
