Sundays Are For Sebastian-#163 (Let’s Try This Again)

This is what I get for trying to plan ahead. As I mentioned yesterday, I am a judge for the Houston Livestock Show And Rodeo Wine Competition, so I am trying to get a few posts “in the can” instead of scrambling very early in the morning. I thought I had scheduled this for Sunday morning, but it actually published late Friday night, thus I am trying again….

Sebastian is my eight-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 is my eight-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.

A few months ago, I succumbed to the boys’ wishes to have dinner out by the pool in our apartment complex.

During dinner, Sebastian complained of being very uncomfortable but his mother and I dismissed it as he often tries to avoid any food that resembles a vegetable.

It turns out that he was being savagely attacked my mosquitoes, while the rest of us escaped virtually unscathed.

The following day, on the way to school….

Sebastian: “Daddy, why did I get so many mosquito bites and you didn’t get any?”

Me: “Well, I am not exactly sure, but it definitely seems that the mosquitoes like you more.”

After a bit of reflection….

Seba: “Yeah, I guess so. I am very lovable.”

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 Philadelphia with my lovely wife and two wonderful sons.

    Well, of course that must be the first reason why. I have heard that mozzies prefer certain blood types to others. Is Sebastian a different type than the rest of you? One of the boys and Derek hardly get bitten, but the rest and I get eaten alive.
