I don't go there

Last June I heard the phrase "I don't go there" for the first time and now
I'm hearing it everywhere.  I heard it first from a friend visiting from LA,
meaning roughly 'I don't allow myself to think about that kind of thing'--
A colleague here used it recently in the form "Don't even go there" i.e.,
'stop teasing me' in the course of an email exchange on our fac. list-serve.
Anyone have any guesses as to how long this has been around and where it
