Phrase: "whistling in the dark"

Posted by Patty on October 01, 2000

I've read the phrase "he was whistling in the dark" a number of times. I couldn't get a definite sense of its meaning. Rather than stake stabs at the real meaning here, I'll just ask for someone who knows to tell me. Thanks. - Patty
