Sundays Are For Sebastian #8

A few weeks ago, I started a new weekly theme: Sundays are for Sebastian. Sebastian is my four year old and he says some of the funniest things–we have no idea where he gets his material since his mother and I are rather boring, serious people. Nonetheless, here is another gem:IMG_0981

Sebastian is getting around to learn how to read. He picked up a beginning reader (the kind with pictures) and sounded out a word (loud enough for us to hear):




Che. Ick. Cun. CHICKEN!”

Thinking that this was a rather difficult word for a beginning reader, and wanting to encourage more self-motivation, I was effusive with the praise and he ate it up.

Later I looked at the book:


About the drunken cyclist

I have been an occasional cycling tour guide in Europe for the past 20 years, visiting most of the wine regions of France. Through this "job" I developed a love for wine and the stories that often accompany the pulling of a cork. I live in Houston with my lovely wife and two wonderful sons.

  1. I started “reading” when I was about three: I would pick up one of the books that had been read to me a hundred times and start reciting it word for word, turning the pages at the appropriate time and everything. It took my mom weeks to realize what I was doing; she didn’t notice until one time when I was holding the book upside down. We then got new books. 🙂
