The question is a bit vague . . can you narrow down what you’re trying to find out?

Been there, done that. Get over it.

Basically I say it when someone makes a big deal over nothing. Kind of like a long version of ”...so?”

I am indeed a place goer and a thing doer.

ZEPHYRA's avatar

I am interested in genuine life experiences, strange events and the like.

Are you talking about scuba diving the pacific reefs, driving a real Nascar Race car, snowbaording the Swiss Alps, eating raw fish and squid fresh from the ocean, being a responsible parent, sometimes a horrible mate. . . . among others – been there, done that.

I have conquered my mind…experienced the throes of passion I never dreamed of…dove beneath the great oceans…experienced the joy of being a parent to great kids and still have my sense of humor…and I am just getting started.

I had crushes on members of the basketball team in high school. They did not reciprocate. I have survived.

I’ve been chased by a black bear and eaten crepes in France…I’m beginning my “been there done that” list

@vanausdr , I ate crepes made by a british guy in the Alaskan wilderness…close enough? hahaha. I’m not mocing you or anything, I just really chereish that memory, and find it really funny, you just reminded me of it.

I have travelled more than most people and tried more things that most have.

Of course, the average person travels very little and tries few things outside their comfort zone.

Financial constraints more than anything else have limited where I have been able to go and what I was able to try.

Not only have I been there and done that, but I also bought the t-shirt, wore it out and gave it to the thrift store.

Sheesh!
