Sundays Are For Sebastian Revisited (#192)

I am once again on the road this week, this time I am headed to New York but not for anything wine-related. No, we are headed to the East Coast to take our older son to visit a few colleges in hopes that will spark his interest. As I normally do, I revisit one of my favorite editions of Sundays Are For Sebastian. This one comes from a couple of years ago. Hopefully, this trip to Connecticut and Massachusetts will prevent this particular conversation from happening again….

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.

This installment comes from about a year and a half ago when Sebastian was seven and we were contemplating our move to Houston….

I often quiz the kids on a variety of subjects throughout the day, a process that I find rather tedious, but the kids seem to love (yeah, one would think it was the other way around). The other day, we were doing state capitals.

Me: “What is the capital of Texas?”

Nathan: “Houston!”

Sebastian: “Hey! I knew that–I was going to say it.”

Nathan: “I was only kidding, the capital of Texas is Austin.”

Sebastian: “Oh, yeah, I knew that!”

A few moments later…

Nathan: “Hey Seba, what’s the capital of Texas?”

Sebastian: “Uh… Boston?”



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.
