My best buddy had baby daughter. I actually delievered her. His wife just called and asked if I would be the godfather of the baby. I am honored but it seems to be a huge responsibility. But anyway, I guess I knew it was coming, I bought her a set of hockey skates even before they asked me to be the godfather. Any hints from the old farts? I also started a college savings program for her.

It is your responsibility to help the parents teach the child about God, and the Christian Faith.

Thats going to be a task and half. They are both Catholics but he has had bad experiences with organized religion and has a problem with it. She is ambivalent.

You'll be able to tell your wife never to ask about your business.

A relative of mine had a child. They asked me to be the child's godfather. I agreed, then they decided not to raise the child in any sort of faith, because the mother wasn't, and she 'turned out okay.'

I guess that makes my job a bit easier. Kind of like being laid off.

Ya, I was surprised that they wanted me to be her doctor. It was like weird at first. But she can be a handful and I think they liked the fact that they could get a hold of me 24/7. She had a real difficult early gestation but later she was a trooper and was in labor only 4 hours for her first baby. I sped to the delivery and almost missed it because I didnt think it would come so fast. My buddy was hilarious. I never saw him so nervous. He paced the floor and made a 3 foot long trench wood. I am very thankful that everything went so well.

No kidding. My niece wrote me a letter the other day.

Dear Uncle Don, I really like riding horses. Will you buy me a pony? I love you lots, Sabine.

WTF! She mailed me a copy and to make sure I would get it she sent a copy of the letter with my mom to hand deliver! How in the hell does a 5 yo know how to work a xerox machine?

Yes the peacemaker is the traitor. He will sleep with the fishies.
