Today is my lovely wife’s birthday and we are celebrating in Siena, Italy this morning before we head off into the heart of Chianti this afternoon. Seeing that she is now one year older, I thought I would revisit an exchange that she had with Sebastian a few years ago….
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.
Tammy was on speakerphone in the car with her mother who told her that her father got hearing aids today.
Sebastian: “What are hearing aids?”
Tammy: “When you get old, sometimes you can’t hear that well, so hearing aids help you hear.”
Seba: “Mommy, can you hear?”
Seba: “How come? You’re old.”
