dance in a hog trough verb phrase
1956 Hall Coll. Del Rio TN Fifty years ago if a younger sister married first, folks would say the older sister “had to dance in a hog trough.” (Louisa Metcalf)
Chitter would be the one having to dance in the hog trough at our house, if Chatter got married first. Chitter is a whole two minutes older than Chatter and let me tell you she lords it over Chatter ever chance she gets.
