Sundays Are For Sebastian #215

Sebastian is my nine-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 loves to play poker, but he has one very predictable trait (a bad thing to have in poker): he never, ever, folds.

The other day, Nathan, Sebastian, and I were playing and once again (due to his inability to ever drop out of a hand), he was knocked out fairly early. This left just his brother and I playing—and the only reason we agreed to the game in the first place was to placate Seba, who had been clamoring to play for several days.

On one particular hand, I had nothing of significance and when it was time to reveal our cards….

Me (as I reveal my cards): “I’ve got nothing.”

Nathan (looking at my cards and assessing his own hand): “I have less than nothing.”

Seba (who had retreated to the couch after being knocked out, dejectedly added): “I have a whole let less than nothing than either of you!”




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.
