Put a pebble in your shoe

Posted by Beth on September 18, 2007

"If you want to forget about your troubles, put a pebble in your shoe." Does anyone know the origin or practice of this phrase? I would like to know this, so I can apply it to the Godspell song By My Side, that says that she'll put a pebble in her shoe and "I shall call the pebble Dare", etc. I've been all over the internet and cannot find an answer.... it's making me crazy. Ideas anyone?
