Sebastian is our thirteen-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. Nathan is now eighteen and in his first year of college in Ohio.
Sebastian’s brother, Nathan, is in his first year at college and was home for a couple of weeks for winter break. One of our favorite games to play together is poker and on one such evening…
Me: “I call, what do you have?”
Nathan: “A flush, you lose!” And he started to grab the chips at the middle of the table.
My wife: “Wait, I have a flush, too!”
Me (after my wife turned over her cards): “Um, that happens to be a Royal Flush…”
Sebastian: “Royal Flush? What are you talking about?”
Nathan (dejected by losing the hand): “You can’t be serious. How long have we been playing poker? You don’t know what a Royal Flush is?! It’s the highest straight flush, A-K-Q-J-10 of the same suit, you moron.”
Sebastian: “Oh, that’s what it is? I always thought a Royal Flush was what they called a toilet in a castle.”
