And? More Idioms.

Someone must be talking about me.  My ‘ears are burning’.

Or ‘Were your ears burning’?  We were just talking about you.

‘Are/were your ears burning?’ means, when it is said about someone or to someone who was not present when they were the subject or topic of conversation.  It is also a silly saying by someone who’s ears are actually hot which is interpreted that someone must be talking about them – my ‘ears are burning’.

Nice car you’ve got?  Reply:  Yeah, cost ‘me an arm and a leg’! means, it was expensive.  It implies being similar to losing two limbs that generally, people would not like to lose.  It can also imply that the price was over inflated.
