"Back in the day..." Can't Post

I'm always hearing this phrase and I wonder when "the day" begins and ends, and if we aren't possibly in someone else's yet to be "day"?

"Back in the day...", commonly used when you think your day began before his day...

That's just to confuse anyone from after back in the day. Anyone from back in the day or before back in the day knows the 99 years is a smoke screen. But don't tell a soul, ok? Our secret?

I even got confirmation once on one of those stories. Eric, the "singing campfire"

A guy overheard me telling the secondhand story at a coffee house, and confirmed it. It involved, alcohol, gasoline, and a campfire that was needed to be really big, really soon Crazy
