Trinidioms #52

"Stop dragging your heels!"

I looked this one up, which obviously seemed to be a combination of dragging you feet and digging in your heels. Apparently Trina's version is actually used.

I want to know how you can be standing in any form and dragging your heels. Seems like you'd fall flat on your face.

Maybe it just means something more extreme than dragging your feet. Like someone is carrying you backward and your heels are dragging behind perhaps?
