The Godfather

Raft3r is a godfather to twenty six children.

Yes, you read that right. 26. That is no typographical error.

I do not know what possessed their parents to designate me with such a tremendous responsibility.

I could hardly be made accountable for my own actions. How could others think I can take care of their children in cases of emergency?

Due to the huge volume of Christmas presents Raft3r had to buy, shopping started as early as September. All twenty six godchildren are now accounted for.

They say Christmas is for kids.

The young ones get all the gifts. Adults do all the spending.

This is one instance when being a grown up sucks.

Ang sipag mong magshop for your godchildren. Sana may anak ako para kunin kitang ninong. At dahil sa pinost mo na 'to, for sure mas marami pang kukuha sa 'yo na ninong ng future kids nila. Baka July pa lang next year you need to shop na for your godchildren.
