Hi Guys,

please what does this IDIOM means ?? It is from the movie, where the CSI forensic is questioning the suspect...he said exactly:

Forensic: I was born at night, but not last night, okay?

I know you picked her up at 22:00......

thank you in advance...guys

The more common phrase is, "I wasn't born yesterday, you know". The one you have offered here is much more clever!
is this sentence correct:

By the time you graduated from high school, I hadn't been born ?
JuanZZZis this sentence correct:

By the time you graduated from high school, I hadn't been born ? Add 'yet', if you'd like.
Correct. But you should have started your own thread with this

you mean

I hadn't been born yet by the time you graduated from high school ?
Hmm..would "I didn't fell from a tree" be possible to say that you are not stupid?

Thank you in advance!
I didn't fallfrom a tree. Emotion: smile

No. I'm not familiar with that idiom to say that I'm not stupid.
But there's a very similar one, much more fun, I think:

I didn't fall off the turnip truck.
