"Keep your eyes peeled". Why on Earth would you peel eyes? Especially your OWN eyes? Shudder. That might hurt a little.

Ouch, I never actually thought about that saying until you brought it up. Painful just thinking about it.

I think the phrase about keeping your eyes peeled has to do with your eyelids, not the eye itself. Keep the eyelids peeled back is basically what it is saying if I am correct, telling the person to be alert.

I know what it's supposed to mean. I just don't like the mental images it conjures up.

Oh THANKS, Crispy. Now you've got me thinking of cheese grators and other kitchen implements again.

Keep up the good work.
