Train Talk

I was sitting on the train yesterday, listening to a conversation going on behind me. I couldn't see the participants, but they sounded like adults, maybe young ones. I didn't notice what the two women had been discussing before this.

"...and you know what they say about curiosity, don't you?"

"Actually, I don't."

"Killed the cat."

"What? You killed a cat??"

"No, curiosity killed the cat. You haven't heard that? Curious, killed the cat. "

"Who's curious?"

"You were talking about curiosity, and I said it killed the cat."

"WHAT cat?"

"It's an expression. Curiosity killed the cat, generosity brought him back."

"Oh. Ohh you didn't say that part about generosity. I would have got it if you'd said the part about generous." They started giggling.

"You've never heard that?"

"I was all, who is Curious, and why would he DO that?"
