This is from a song that Johnny Cash sang. I want to know what runners in her hose means:
Back when we could laugh and play
On family reunion day
Didn't we all look funny
In our 1950s clothes?
Your daddy wore that greasy stuff
Your brother drank more than enough
Your mom wore penny loafers
With runners in her hose
I guess hose is short for pantyhose but despite having many alternatives for runner my dictionary doesn't have any that fit into this sentence.
