fall asleep on a clothes line

Posted by Jan Hicks on January 04, 2006

'I could fall asleep on a clothes line' or 'I could go to sleep on a clother line' is a phrase that I have used and I do, I think, sort of know the origin. Many years ago in hostels or places for the homeless one could lean on a clothes line to sleep?

What is the exact phrase as I can't find it anywhere and is this more or less the correct origin.
