Not certain I've ever used the phrase, but I certainly know it. Were all the people you were with 17 years old?

You know.. haunts... Places you used to hang around at. I said that last night, and everyone in the room looked at me like I had two heads.

I KNOW I've heard it and said it before.... Anyone else?
Heard it all the time growing up. You are not normal by any means - but I have heard this saying.

Yeah, I've used it quite a bit in my own vocabulary as well, along with "stomping grounds" used in the same veign (sp?).

he had no idea what it meant so i had to explain it to him.

Today I mentioned that in a business deal gone bad I "took a bath on that one". The two other people in the room looked at me like I was crazy. I'm pretty sure that's not an uncommon expression for "getting taken to the cleaners" or "Losing your shirt"

I've heard it. Forgot about it though. It's been a few decades.

When you "mature" your short term memory tends to go before your long term memory. Don't worry about it. It will happen to all of us.
