Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
She loved odd puzzles like pigs in clover, the spider’s hole, baby billiards and the like.
pig in clover = parvenu, upstart
Thanks for your efforts.
Given the context and the fact the other items in the list are all puzzles and games, I think it far more likely that this:
Pigs in Clover
is what is being talked about, don't you?
I know this forum is great, but sometimes searching yourself first is a good idea. I'd never heard of the game before, but it was the first result.
