Subject: Re: "my bad"

Regarding the discussion on "my bad," I've never heard that phrase but

have heard "my bag" used in much the same way. However, this expression

was popular when I was in the eighth grade and possibly high school

(1985-1988)and I haven't heard it much since. Then again, I haven't lived

in my hometown in SW Virginia since then, either; hence, it could be alive

and well. FYI, it was popular with all young people of all races and was

not limited to basketball players or athletes. Hope this helps.
