Sundays Are For Sebastian #185

IMPORTANT: Don’t forget to enter for a chance to win wine or a Cono Sur Cycling Jersey by texting today’s winner after the stage has finished to @ConoSurWines and @masi3v using the hashtag #TourDeBicicleta!

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. 

This week marks the first anniversary of our move from Philadelphia to Houston, so  here is an episode from the week leading up to the “grand depart”–our last week in Philly a year ago.

Sebastian will be turning eight next month, but he has only been to a “real” barber once in his life (I have filled the role of hair stylist on every other occasion). Before leaving Philadelphia, I decided that the boys needed a haircut and seeing that my tools of the trade  had already been packed up and shipped off to Houston, I needed to take them to a professional.

I found what appeared to be an acceptable barber on the internet and we hopped in the car and drove to South Philly.

As we approached the neighborhood, I told the boys to keep a lookout for a barber pole.

Sebastian: “What is a barber pole?’

Me: “Kind of what is sounds like. It’s a pole outside a barber shop.”

Seba: “What is it for?”

Me: “Well, it is to let you know that there is a barber there.”

Sebastian, after a bit of contemplation: “Is there such a thing as a pizza pole?”




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.
