Sundays Are For Sebastian—#98

Sebastian is my six-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.

Given this week’s “news” story about arsenic in wine, I thought this exchange from a little over a year ago (when Sebastian was five) was particularly à propos….

Both of the boys were being particularly rambunctious the other night with their mother being out of town. Despite all this, I decided to take them out to dinner. After sitting down the waitress took my drink order and asked if I wanted to get something for the boys to drink.

Me: “Water’s fine…. Unless you have some arsenic.”

After the waitress laughed and then left, Nathan asked:

“What is arsenic?”

Me: “Poison.”


Sebastian: “Hey! I am allergic to poison!”       


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.
