Have you ever seen someone in the act of eavesdropping? I swear it’s like you can see their ear growing bigger… kinda like Pinocchio’s nose, but the ear. I’ve always thought this as a child.
“hmmm. That person is trying to listen to what those other people are saying, because they are siting real still and turning their ear toward that group’s conversation.”
And I would imagine a huge ear, like Dumbo’s.
I laughed and laughed! OMG.
I’m in my 40’s and I still think that’s funny. If I came across a huge ear, I’d totally do the same thing! Like the Wolf said to Goldilocks, “All the better to hear you with, my dear.”
