Sundays Are For Sebastian Revisited (#68)

I am once again on the road this week, this time headed to France to once again lead a couple of bike tours. As I usually do when I am on the road, I revisit a previous version of Sundays Are For Sebastian. Recently, I have been reviewing some of the earliest posts (which were started over five [!] years ago) as I consider them some of the funniest. They might all be revisited soon as Sebastian, who is quickly approaching his teenage years, is producing fewer quips these days.

Today’s comes from precisely four years ago, when Sebastian was five years old….

Sebastian is my five-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.

Nathan: “Hey Daddy, if you had one wish, what would it be?

Me: “That you would stop saying ‘Hey Daddy.'”

Nathan: “Seba if you had one wish what would it be?”

Sebastian: “That you would admit that Five Guys fries are better than In & Out Burger’s fries.”

Nathan: “Well if I had one wish it would be to control all the atmospheric conditions and be able to fly.”

Me: “That’s two wishes.”

Nathan: “Well if I controlled all atmospheric conditions then I could fly so it’s only one wish.”

Me: “I don’t see how controlling the atmospheric conditions is going to enable you to fly.”

Seba: “Yeah! What Daddy said!”


“Besides, you don’t even have a cape.”







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.
