Sundays Are For Sebastian #14

A couple of months 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. photo-40

Sebastian had his T-Ball All-Star game a few weeks ago. He was despondent after the awarding of the MVP t-shirts (he did not get one).

Tammy: “What’s the matter?”
Seba: “I wanted to get something, too.”
Tammy: “Well if you practice hard and try your best….”
Me: [I cut her off] “All members of the team get a free hotdog.”
Seba: “They do?!? Why didn’t you say so?” [Takes off running.]


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. Who doesn’t love a free hotdog! I’m doing a half marathon in September with a wine tasting afterwards. I can see that being right up Sebastian’s alley (in 20 years or so…)!


    • Anyone who runs a half marathon deserves whatever they want at the end of it, regardless of age (but yes, we are hoping that he refrains from drinking for several more years). Best of luck with the race!


  2. Sebastian has the right attitude and value structure, I would much rather have a hot dog than and MVP t-shirt I had to share with a bunch of other kids.who most likely didn’t let him play much, made fun of his game and who where ill mannered and crowed in line to get the t-shirt. Yo Sebastian

    As long as you get something that is all that counts and at that age hot dogs are a great reward!


  4. Sebastian and Ken, if they ever meet, are going be great friends. He ditched me in the park today, leaving me at the PowWow in the 90+ degree weather (in Providence, yes there was really a real PowWow in the park, and I was watching the little kids do the candy dance). He claimed it was just too hot and he was going somewhere to sit down in the shade. 10 minutes later, he strolled back. Walking together to the bus stop, we passed a hot dog stand–knowing that he can never resist them, I said he ought to treat himself to one. Thought I was being very considerate. He grinned. He already HAD treated himself to one.
