Sundays Are For Sebastian #155

Sebastian is my eight-year old (his birthday was Friday) 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.

I asked the boys to help me unload the dishwasher. Normally, Sebastian handles the silverware, but this time, I handed him several dishes to put away.

After struggling to reach the cupboard that contained the plates, he uttered: “I can’t reach!”

Me: “Try harder, you’re a smart kid, figure it out!”

After reaching in vain for another few seconds: “I can’t reach, I just can’t!”

Me, frustrated that he still was not getting the message that I wanted him to use his head to figure out how to get the job done: “I don’t want to hear the word ‘can’t’ again, figure it out!”

Another few seconds later….

Seba: “I…can not reach, I just can not.


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.

    From another avid cyclist: Did you see this about cycling among Silicon Valley CEOs? I always felt it was smart to give up golf and concentrate on cycling.
