Lying About My Age

Green Bay did itself proud with the NFL kick off celebration earlier this week.  The weather was spectacular, the crowd sizable but well-behaved, and the game entertaining. 

As part of the pre-game festivities, there was a concert given by Maroon 5, Kid Rock, and Lady Antebellum.  As parts of these concerts would be broadcast, there was a "casting call" for people to surround the stage.  Being the music fan I am, I went to the appropriate website to enter my information so that I might be picked as one of the screaming minions. 

Everything was going great, until I hit the field marked "AGE?" 


I'm sure the last thing the producers wanted was to see my old rear end shaking to Bawitdaba.  I stopped and considered my slim prospects. 

And then I lied about my age. 

Just like I did when standing in front of a bouncer in college, I looked the website straight in the eye and lied.  And it was a whopper, too.  I shaved off 20 years.  

While I didn't get selected (note to self, next time, make it even younger), it was interesting to have to lie about my age again.  And I thought my days of trying to pass myself off as a college upperclassman were over...
