Reflecting on a Deja Vu

A deja vu is a deja vu only if it's a deja vu of a deja vu, you know?

Nope you are wrong. As I understand it, in French, it is used for something already seen or not original. In English, it often refers to the phenomenon of feeling like you have already seen or done something when you're sure that you haven't. Deja vu of a deja vu is more like Yogi Berra version of "deja vu all over again". Not the same thing as the literal meaning of deja vu.

Nope, you're wrong! ;-)

Seriously though -- here's what I'm saying:

The only way for you to actually feel like you've done something before is if you're actually feeling that you were feeling that same deja vu feeling the last time too. Otherwise, the deja vu is incomplete.

You just love to complicate situations, don't ya? I disagree. For example, if you are at a certain place, where you have never been before, (has happened to me before) yet everything seems familiar for some reason...that is deja vu. If you go to that place again and have the same feeling again then that is deja vu of a previous deja vu. I guess we need a Frenchman/ woman to clear this up. Been a while since I last spent months living in France (in 1985) and my French has become rusty, I confess.
