Sundays Are For Sebastian—#36

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.


Our five year old, Sebastian, is always asking for food (and we do feed him regularly) even minutes after he has just finished a meal. The other day, about 30 minutes after eating four pieces of pizza, a cupcake and a large piece of chocolate birthday cake, he asked:

“Can I have something to eat, I’m hungry?”

Frustrated, I bent down to his level and said:

“Sebastian, there is no possible way you are hungry–you JUST ate! If I hear you ask me for food or tell me that you’re hungry one more time, you are in big trouble.”

Five minutes later, there is a tug on my pant leg. I look down and Sebastian says simply “Daddy….”

Then he pointed a finger at his gaping mouth while simultaneously rubbing his belly with his other hand.


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.

  2. Jeff, you may become the next Art Linkletter, after all “kids say the darnedest things.” At least he didn’t ask for a glass of Latour.
