But this is not a medical lesson. We're here for another reason. Superstition. That't right. Did you know there is a superstition about ringing ears? You didn't? I didn't either.
The superstition holds that if your left ear is ringing, then someone is saying nice things about you. But, if your right ear is ringing, beware because someone is speaking badly of you. I had always heard that if your ears were burning, then someone was talking about you. This is better because you know if it's good or bad.
According to one source, you can break it down even further by not only left or right ear, but by the time of day the ringing occurs.
11 p.m. - 1 a.m.
Left ear means a girlfriend or loved one is thinking about you.
Right ear means you will lose money.
1 a.m. - 3 a.m.
Left ear means you will have a quarrel.
Right ear means you will have a more serious dispute.
3 a.m. - 5 a.m.
Left ear means you will lose money.
Right ear means you will be rushed off your feet.
It goes on to cover all 24 hours of the day with such predictions as friends coming over, you will be taking a journey, you will have a feast, etc. The writer states that these are the Chinese interpretations of ringing in the ears.
After all that, my ears are ringing, how about yours?
