Can anyone please tell me the meaning of this phrase: "dance(ing) with the lady with a whole in her stocking"? It's the headline of a chapter in a book about women with ADHD. What ideas or connotations does the expression bring to native speakers? Research on the internet reveals that the phase has been part of several songs, e.g. Buffalo Gals, but what kind of woman is she? Is it someone you should feel sorry for (because of the whole), or is she rather devil-may-carish (because she dances in spite of the whole) ... or? And what might the reference to ADHD be?! (Maybe that she hasn't noticed the whole or can't find a stocking without a whole).
