My Goddaughter is a Geek.


My Goddaughter is so cool she has her own blog.

Becoming a Godfather is actually one of the coolest things that’s ever happened to me…

I’ve ALWAYS wanted to be a Godfather.  The parents are great friends, the father is my best friend and was the best man at my wedding.  I’ve known him since 1991-92 timeframe and his wife is the sweetest thing ever.  Months back, while eating at the bar at a local Sushi joint he raised his Sake glass and said, “Here’s to being a Godfather”.  Of course, my world came to a bit of a halt…a somewhat screeching one…and I went silent because I was just stuck with happiness.  I’d secretly hoped they’d pick me, and they did!  What a great feeling.  Being asked to help guide a child through life, in any way, is an incredible honor.

So cheers to my Goddaughter and her new found technology itch.  I look forward to future insightfulness such as:

  1. How to attract immediate attention by using appropriate noises.
  2. How to poop all over your brand new U of M gear and still have your Daddy love you.
  3. Boobs.  Just…boobs.
  4. The best tactics for recycling milk onto your new friend’s shoulder.

In closing…I give you…the Godfather (in more ways than one!)  So please click play below and watch all the way through…then you’ll understand what I mean.  <chuckle>
