Sundays Are For Sebastian—#26

Several months ago, I started a new weekly theme: Sundays Are For Sebastian. Sebastian is my five 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.

The other day Sebastian seemed a little down, so I thought I would ask him about his day.

Me: “Sebastian, how was school?”

Sebastian: “Horrible!”

As he turned away, his eyes welled up as if he were on the verge of tears. Immediately images of bullying started to race through my head, as I pulled out my phone to give the school a call. I tried to stay calm as I probed for a little more information.

Me: “Why?!? What happened?”

Sebastian: “Nothing,” he responded dejectedly, seeming even closer to tears. I decided, after all my years in education, he was hiding something and he was afraid to tell me about some horrific occurrence.

Me: “It’s OK, you can tell me, nothing bad will happen, I promise. Now, what happened?”

Sebastian: “That’s just it, nothing happened. Nothing at all. Nothing exciting happened all day long.”

As he stormed off, I refrained from telling him that 30 years from now he will probably consider that a “great” day….


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.
