Japanese, general discussion on the language


Postby tanuki » Sat 03.11.2006 5:02 pm

Hello, all!

So, I was...maybe you guessed it already...watching anime, and I found something interesting. Some people were talking about a man who wasn't there, saying some good and bad stuff about him. Suddenly, the scene changes and we see that man sneezing. Others who are with him ask him "Are you alright? Is it a cold?" and he responds: "No, I'm fine. I wonder if someone's talking about me?".

I find that funny, the way one "feels" others are talking about one here is because one's ears burn. So...well, that's it, I really haven't any question, I just wanted to comment. :) Maybe you can tell if it's different where you live?
