This Sunday’s for Nathan #5

While this space is usually used to recount the utterances of our younger son, Sebastian, today the quip is from our older boy. Nathan is closing in rapidly on 17, is 6’4″, a junior in high school, and finds his parents to be extremely un-cool.

I had just received some new filters for my DSLR camera when Nathan walked in.

Nathan: “Why are you putting on that? It will make all the pictures you take purple?”

Me: “No it won’t, it’s a fluorescent light filter.”

Nathan: “And why are you using that camera?”

Me: “Huh?”

Nathan: “It’s so lame, it can’t even take selfies.”



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.

    A good looking young man. I wish him the very best in his future! He can still learn a lot from you. (even if Dad is un-cool.)


  2. Selfies, my man, selfies ❤️ What a wonderful story to one day share back with him 😊 You should, next time you see him & have your camera, have him pose with you for a selfie “for fun” – then show it to him years from now, with this post’s story. It’ll mean the world to him 💕
