You have to simply step forward and find the common link between these words:
age, date, drill, go, hole
The correct link works in the exact same way for each of the words.

You can ...
... append each of these words to the word "man" to make new English words:
manage, mandate, mandrill, mango, manhole
Could it be:
things you lie/use as excuses?
I would think that
people, especially children, would lie about all of the above to get out of something. i.e "I'm eighteen," "Sorry dude, I got a date," "Of course I finished my drills, Coach!", "Yeah, I went to the study session," and finally, "I didn't make that hole in the yard looking for dinosaurs! It was aliens!!"
The common link between the words "age, date, drill, go, hole"
is, quite clearly,
I am Not sure, but it's may be Archaeology
Age & Date : Archaeology is the study of the ancient and recent human past through material remains.
Drill & Hole : Drill & Hole for analysis of the material
Go : Visit Different Places.
This might be reference to your life (like the Riddle of the Sphinx):
Age you are born and from now on it is increasing continuously, you are getting older, you are aging
Date you have your first love, you date
Drill you are conscripted (in some countries) or go to work, you have some duties you have to follow
Go you leave your parents, or alternatively you get retired
Hole you die and are put in a hole in soil, on cemetery, you get buried
What might be wrong and does not match is that the last word is not a verb. However, this is not a verb intentionally, because this is the moment when you are not able to perform any action (see also the 3rd meaning on the Wiktionary).
