Alex writes in Flaming Pablum's The Dad Zone about being in his Forties and dealing with the implications that some things are off limits due to his age.
Reminds me of some of the conversations I have with Mrs. Metal Dad who often wonders aloud, "When are you going to grow up?" or the popular, "How many black hoodies do you really need?" To which I invariably reply, "How many are there?"
Ian MacKaye of Minor Threat sums it up for me when he sang, "I might be an adult but I'm a minor at heart." Unlike Alex, I stay out of the pit at shows for the most part. The two main reasons being I'm too old and slow to be in there and both of my sons have promised they will never go to a show with me again if I get in the pit.
P.S You really should be reading Flaming Pablum. It's good reading.
