    I'm collecting tales of my youth that I may submit to a publisher one day.

    I imagine the statute of limitations is up for theft and B&E by now... just don't admit to Murder (no statute of limitations on that)

    It's certainly not actionable. If the authorities show up on your doorstep, tell them you made it up. They can't prove otherwise unless you left evidence behind.

    No government agency would waste the time and resources for coming after you on this anyways. It's a complete waste of their time. Don't even waste the brain power on being concerned.

    You've fallen into our trap! Now we know it was you!

    You should be fine, like everyone else said. Unless there really is that one dude out there who's got a hard on for the case of the missing keg. But I imagine he wouldn't have much to bring against you.

    Though the FBI did track down my draft-dodging friend about 15 years after he did not go in when called up. Men in suits showed up at the door.

    He never got any time for it, IIRC.

    If they come after you, offer them a drink.

    Or five. From that special keg you keep in the cellar.

    My favorite part of this is how excited he is that once, just once, he's not confused and he's so excited he has to tell everyone else that for once, just once, he's not confused.

    I, too, feel that way when someone makes an obscure reference.

    Just remember, whether or not they're true, it never hurts to embellish, a little. ;)

    So what are you exactly afraid of? That some kind of cop would come, read your story, and open an investigation on you?

    This is a work of fiction. Names, characters, places and incidents either are products of the author’s imagination or are used fictitiously. Any resemblance to actual events or locales or persons, living or dead, is entirely coincidental.

    Sixty percent of the time, it works every time.
