Sundays Are For Sebastian Revisited (#118)


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?”

Tammy: “Yes”


Seba: “How come? You’re old.”

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.

  2. I love (most of the time) how kids don’t have a filter. I look forward to read about your post about your experiences you had in Siena and Chianti. I was in that region a couple of years ago and spent a great deal of time enjoying some great Chianti. September is the month for their Chianti festival. Hopefully you will be there in time to participate!

    Uh, oh. Please tell your lovely wife that I’m not laughing. I’m not even smiling.
    Wish her a belated happy birthday, too.
