    "I'm in bed, mate!" (or pal, buddy, etc). (Perhaps with a woman - the context would clarify)

    Thank you, Raymott. I thought it means to be in bed just in phrase "to hit a sack". You were of great help. thanks again,

    Dear Blueeye:

    To 'hit the sack' means to go to bed:

    'I've had a long day. I guess I'll hit the sack early tonight."
