Hi all,

Please, I need your help with the following:

I found this post on social media of a gym talking about their recent reopening (due to the COVID-19 pandemic) and classes:

"Whether it's indoors, outdoors, or virtually - the writing is on the walls."

From what I understood, after doing some research, "the writing is on the walls" is an expression with a negative connotation, but I'm still going through a hard time to understand its meaning in this sentence. Could anyone help me?

 

I really appreciate your help.

Cheers!

Hello, Jessy—The expression is "The writing is on the wall," not "The writing is on the walls." Without more context, I can't say what they had in mind. Maybe they are talking about actual writing on walls. It seems to be a play on words.
