You know you're getting old when...

I have no idea what is happening here, so it must be new since I last saw the show ... in 1997. are going to see Blue Man Group for the second time in your life and you realize the first time you saw it was almost 20 years ago. What?!

I can't remember precisely, but we saw it right after it opened in Chicago because my friend Bernie made it to one of the final auditions as a drummer for the troupe—but did not get the final gig—and they either offered him free or deeply discounted tickets right when it opened in Chicago. I'm gonna guess if they cost money Photogal paid for them because at that time I would've still been cobbling a bunch of jobs together in order to make enough money for rent, food and beer.

I will say this about that memory: I still can vividly envision segments of that Blue Man show and am curious to see which bits are still in there two decades later. I'm seeing it because it just underwent a pretty major revamp, including a new finale, but I'm sure I'll recognize a good portion of the show.
