Sundays Are For Sebastian—#64

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.


We found out the night before that Sebastian had a school show the following day. Unfortunately, he also had a dentist appointment at the same time. When asked, Seba said he really did not want to miss the performance. His class was only going to sing one song in the show, however, and canceling the dentist appointment would cost us $25, so I had a brilliant idea:

Me: “Sebastian, if you go to the dentist instead of the performance, Mommy will take you to Target and you can have $10 to spend. Do you want to do that?”

Seba: “OK! Will we go to Target right after the dentist?”

My wife then waved to me and took over.

My wife: “Sebastian, if you go to the dentist instead of the performance, I’ll buy you a donut.”

Seba: “Ooooh, donut! Deal” And then he ran off.

My wife: “Just saved us $9.”20140629-081221.jpg

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.

    Maybe you should not tell this to Sebastian, but usually when I sit at the dentist’s chair, I have a different expression in my face. And I enter the place kicking, screaming, and demanding some laughing gas otherwise I shall not sit still.

    Yeah, I am the Queen of all Drama Queens… 😉


  3. Awesome! Way to go Mom!


  4. I hate to say this…but I think I like Sebastian a little bit more than I like you…

    That being said, we should try and meet up while I’m still in Philly!

    Has this happened more than once, or is this a repost, or am I completely mistaken?

    Too funny. I wish my 20 year-olds were so easily fooled.

    The way to manipulate every boy, fully grown or not, is through their stomach.
