    Smile A while back

    Hello,
    I see this phrase "A while back, ..."at a start of an sentence. I don't get what does this mean? Can somebody do me a favor? Thank you ^^

    Hi, tanencas! Welcome to the forums!

    "A while back" means in the past... an unspecified period of time. "A while back, I lost my baseball cap while camping." "A while back, we used to eat fish on Fridays."

    Cheers,
    Amigo
