Sundays Are For Sebastian #184

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. 

At times I often play the game of “Would you rather…” with the boys when I present them with two equally unappealing choices from which to choose. 

Me: “Would you rather eat a live worm or kiss a girl on the lips for five seconds?”

Seba: “Easy. Eat the worm–that won’t kill me right?”

Me: “Probably not.”

Seba: “Would you rather go to work naked or shave off all your hair?”

Me: “Easy. Go to work naked.”

Seba: “Bursts out laughing. What?! You would? Are you crazy?”

Me: “I work from home.”

Seba: “Oh. Yeah. I did not think that one all the way through, did I?”




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.

        Heelers and poodles are pretty much the smartest dogs you can buy. My current dog is a blue heeler, AKA an Australian cattle dog. I wish you luck in finding a dog, Cyclist. And dogs are far smarter than cats. They understand what “love” means, and that’s big. My dog, Aesop, has a conscience, and knows right from wrong. If you want to treat a dog right, then take it for a walk. Dogs love that. I discourage poodles unless you’re rich, and that’s because poodles don’t shed. Instead, you have to take them to a parlor for a trim, and that gets expensive. I highly recommend heelers, except for the fact that they’re asocial — a one-person dog. My family once had a doxie named Ricky, and he was fiercely independent. He lived to be about 13yo. I loved that animal. Heck, I named him after Adolph Rickenbacker. He was a very small dog, tho the top dog of his litter. He died due to a hernia. His bowel was just hanging out… Another great breed is the pug. Henry and I were great friends. Pugs are so ugly that they’re cute. Henry had all the common defects: apple head, wry jaw, wall eye. But he was my best friend for a long time. And when he got old, with multiplying health issues, I paid a lot of money to keep him alive. The end came when his cataracts blinded him. He was also deaf. So, he was like Helen Keller dog. He got depressed and had to be put down. One of the hardest decisions of my life… I hope this helps a little. Pick a dog who will last as long as you do. I believe the bigger the dog, the longer they’ll live. Miniatures don’t survive very long. I hope Aesop survives me. Have a great Fourth, Cyclist.

    Be honest: you showed him your dance moves, and he copied you?
