I am out on the West Coast this week, tasting some wine and catching up with old friends. As is my wont when I am away from home, I revisit a previous Sundays Are For Sebastian. This one comes from six years ago when Sebastian was eight….
Sebastian is my eight-year-old 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.
I took Sebastian and a friend of his to the new Spiderman movie. During one poignant scene, the character, trying to avoid detection falsely admitted that he was watching porn on a school computer.
The theater erupted in laughter.
Seba to his friend: “What’s porn?”
His friend: “I don’t know.”
Seba, just as the laughter died down and the theater once again fell silent, turned to me and in a very loud voice: “Daddy, what’s porn?”
