Muito Boa. Mesmo eu sendo nativo, não conheço todas as expressões e ditados do português.

Es do Brasil? Por que estes ditados são portugueses. Não brasileiros...

I haven't heard this expression in a very long time :D
Deveria mas é utilizá-la porque tenho amigos que estão sempre com a pulga atrás da orelha. xD

Interesting – a flea in one's ear in English has a very different meaning: to be unreasonably irritated about something.
