BOXED EARS
Never quite got it, the reason i mean, for the saying.
"If i catch you doing [such and such] i'll box your ears".
Such a silly saying. [I mean in the face of boxes of chocolates]
Such a serious threat. With such painful gain.

  3. I've read this twice now, and a different way each time. The first way was lighthearted, silly. Wonder why we do say that?

    The second way was much darker...serial killer type stuff. A box of actual ears, wrapped in a bow, like those chocolates. Chilling.

    Powerful piece, to be able to draw either conclusion. Well done.
