  • (verb) - To tie a handkerchief around a man's arm to designate that he is to play the part of a female at a dance where there are not enough ladies to go around. He is then said to dance "lady fashion," and his reward is being allowed to set with the ladies between dances. This privilege, however, quite often makes him feel as out of place as a cow on a front porch. --Ramon Adams' Western Words: A Dictionary of the Range, Cow Camp, and Trail, 1946
