Sundays Are For Sebastian Revisited (#18)

[As I mentioned yesterday, I am up in Corning, NY for the annual Wine Bloggers Conference, where the internet access is surprisingly woefully inadequate. Thus, this week, I decided to revisit one of my favorite editions of Sundays instead of trying to stay online long enough for a new post. This one comes from almost exactly two years ago when Sebastian, then age four, broke his arm in summer camp….]

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.

Sebastian had to go back to the hospital again Thursday. The break was not properly aligned in the cast so we needed to go back in to surgery. This was of course not great news, but the kid is still Sebastian:

The anesthesiologist placed the mask on his face (in order to put him under) and asked him to count to ten.

Sebastian nodded and then closed his eyes.

A moment later, he opened his eyes and said “Done!”

After the anesthesiologist stopped laughing, she tried again:

“OK, Sebastian, we need to do that one more time. Count to ten again, but this time go a little past ten, and say it out loud.”

Sebastian closed his eyes once again. He then opened them and said:

“Eleven.”Blue cast

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.

    poor guy- I know that happened a couple of years ago, but that’s a lot for a little guy to go through.

    That’s a huge smile for a kid with a broken arm!

    I had to use my damn hotspot every freaking day the wifi was so bad. Good thing there was so much alcohol around.
