Sebastian is our 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.
My wife (a pediatrician) wanted Sebastian to be a part of a vaccine study for COVID-19, which would require him to get some blood drawn.
Nathan knowing how Seba feels about shots (and Nathan feels exactly the same way, but figured he was in the clear since his mother did not mention him), started giving his brother the business.
Nathan: “Yeah, and if they miss the vein, they will have to keep trying until they find it.”
Seba: “Wait, they are going to stick the needle in my vein?? WHY?!?!”
Me: “Um. Because that’s where the blood is?”
Seba: “What? Really? Then I’m out.”
