Willy, you may not be aware

Willy, you may not be aware of the origin of "dusting my broom". The blues song actually goes: I got up this morning and I believe I'll dust my broom." It is my understanding that "DUSTING ONE'S BROOM' has a sinister connotation in that it may mean a disciplinary action by a man hitting a woman with a broom for being unfaithful. I wonder how true this is... Have to look in the blues history books.
