I'm the Godfather to two very special babies - my nephew Joshua and my cousin's dog TJ.
Being a Godparent is a special privilege. You get to walk around talking in a husky voice, telling people to "fahgetabboudit," and then have people kiss your ring. Sometimes you get to move to New Jersey. It's really a great feeling.
Now TJ's momma is preggers with a baby boy. We've tried to tell TJ that her life is about to change, but her attention span is only like 5 seconds unless she can smell food. She has no idea what's coming.
This begs the question, is there such thing as a "Goduncle?" I'm the Godfather to TJ, so that makes me Goduncle to the new baby, right? Right?! My wife doesn't think so, and she usually knows these kinds of things, but maybe she's just jealous of my Goduncle status.
If Goduncle isn't a word, then I'm making it one. Beyonce made up "bootylicious" so that entitles me to make up my own word. My word is the bootylicious equivalent of the Godparent heirarchy.
To celebrate me being a new Goduncle, I got the first season of Sopranos through NetFlix. I'm not going to watch it - I'm going to have someone else watch it and then give me a brief summary overview. That's how us Goduncles run things around here.
