By the way

I am a Godfather.  Even though I never even met my Goddaughter.  I was not even present at her baptism.  I was the Godfather by proxy.   Or so I was told.

Anyway, needless to say, I am a lousy Godfather.  I never communicated with my Goddaughter, did not send her even one Birthday Card.  The only thing I ever heard about her was her marriage to a Protestant, whose father was a Protestant Minister and in that capacity officiated at their wedding.  The father pronounced 'asunder' as two words.

Not only did my Goddaughter marry into a Protestant Family, she married into a particularly stupid one.

Like I said, I am a lousy Godfather.

There's an absurdist play here somewhere.
