I am on the road once again this week, thus, as I normally do when traveling, I revisit a Sundays are for Sebastian. This one comes from about three years ago….
Sebastian is my seven-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 a bit obsessed with tattoos. At just about every chance, he applies a temporary tattoo. So it was no surprise that when we were out visiting his cousins, he was fascinated by their rather impressive henna tattoos. He was even more taken when he found out that his cousins, twin girls, had applied the tattoos on one another.
When they asked if he wanted one, his eyes grew big with anticipation. He took a moment, however, to re-examine the girls’ tattoos: a rather detailed flower and an intricate curly design, reminiscent of a fancy bracelet.
After he got the OK from his mother, he returned to his cousin and said:
“But make it manly.”
