    It must be a Kentucky espression because i've heard my parents say it. It means someones acting preppy or something, high and mighty maybe.

    Sounds like an expression describing a person who is afraid of something that is silly to be scared of. 0_o


    I don't really know though.

    I have actually heard this used before in the following context:

    Its raining outside and the person says "I don't know if I want to go outside because I might melt" meaning because they are so sweet they are made of sugar and might melt Something like that. Hope that kinda explains it.

    Did you get this expression from a book? or a short story? Where this family goes to a carnival with their new neighbors. The neighbors have never seen cotton candy before and eat like loads of it. then it looks like it's going to rain so they tell the family they want to go back. then they dart for their house and as soon as they step out of the car, it starts to rain and they melt. lol weird story, but just wondering if this is what it was from. (I know this isn't where the expression originated but if she had simply seen it there)
