Sundays Are For Sebastian #300

A quick update: things here in Houston are getting back to normal (the new COVID-normal, that is). Power and heat are back on, the water has been restored (although we are still under a boiling directive), I took my first shower in almost a week, and it looks like the temperature today will be back to what we expect in the winter70s and sunny. A great day for a ride! Thank you all for your concern and messages! Who knew that Texas is actually a third world country?

Sebastian our my twelve-year-old son 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. 

The other day, as they often do, they were playing another round of “Random Trivia.”

Nathan: “Who was the first person on the moon?”

Seba: “Armstrong!”

Nathan: “Wow, I’m impressed! What was his first name?”

Seba looks at me and I almost immediately drop to one knee, to try to give him a hint.

Sebastian: “Larry?”

Nathan: “Dude! he just gave you the biggest hint! He took a knee, he was kneeling! And you say Larry?? Who was the second person on the moon”

Seba: “Buzz Aldrin.”

Nathan: “You can answer that queston, but not the easier one about Armstrong’s first name??”

Sebastian went in to get braces this week. Here is the before….


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.

    Well honestly, I expected him to say Lance! lol 🙂

    hey, I’d love to share a Sicilian wine with you. Well, not share as in drink together because I already drank it all when I was in Sicily. (I’m sure you can appreciate that) One of the best wines I’ve ever had. I’d like to connect you with the vintner and see if we can get it imported to the States.


  2. Hahaha that’s a great story. Love his sense of humour. And yours too, calling Texas a third world country. Oh, you weren’t joking? I guess not. 😁 Glad to know things are improving.
