Sundays Are For Sebastian—#139

Sebastian is my seven-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. This one comes from a while ago, shortly after Sebastian learned to read….

According to my wife, there are many rather innocuous words that are verboten in our house: kill, shut (particularly when followed by “up”), darn, shucks, and pretty any word that refers to the human body. Apparently, so is the word “Dead”.

Sebastian: “What are we having for dinner?”

Me: “Salmon”

Sebastian: “Is the salmon dead?”

My wife: “Don’t say ‘dead’!”

[Pause]

Sebastian (who after quite a struggle, is finally a reader); “Is it ‘dee-uh’ and ends with a ‘D’?”

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.
