Oh man, that was not my intent, wasn't really trying to cause you grief so much as sorta give ya a stiff poke, but it seems my humor sorta missed its mark...I'll chalk that one up to me.....but no harm no foul brother.
I can see how we misunderstood each other, your exclamation of surprise sorta hit me like you thought he might be using alternate facts, and my buddy OG is prolly one of the most kinda and generous people I know...and really really honest....so in a poking way i sorta pressed you about your statement, but sure didn't mean to cause you to feel funny brother and for that i do applogize.
I used this saying as a slang term, this should explain it ok.
