    "You peel my onion down to the nub"

    What is the meaning of the phrase?
    "You peel my onion down to the nub."

    When is it used?

    Can you give us the context for the sentence so we don't have to guess?

    First of all it is a sentence, not a phrase; secondly it is American; it means you find out every little detail about someone.
