Sundays Are For Sebastian #354

Sebastian is our fourteen-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 and I were talking about Ted Cruz, one of Texas’ sitting senators (we are not fans).

Me (to Sebastian): “Name three current U.S. senators.”

Sebastian: “Um…”

Me: “Really?”

Seba: “Ted Cruz!”

Me: “Wow, impressive. Name two others.”

Seba: “Um….”

Me: “What are they teaching you at school, seriously? There are 100 senators and you can only name one (and possibly the worst)? OK, name five current or former senators.”

Seba: “Ted Cruz!”

My wife: “Many presidents were once senators.”

Seba: “Biden! Obama!”

Me: “That’s three.”

Seba: “Bush!”

My wife: “Which one?”

Me: “I now realize this was a bad idea.”





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.
