    At home at home

    "I am at home at home". I saw this sentence today.
    Is there any such usages?
    Thank you.

    Re: At home at home

    Where did you see it? Is there some context to go with this?
    Can we get some context, please?

    On it's own, it could be a very inelegant way of saying that the person feels truly at home when they're at home.

    Host: Please feel at home in our house.
    Guest: I feel at home at home, not in houses of people I visit.
