The honorary fairy godfather (!)
My wife is the godmother to the daughter of one of her cousins. I blogged about her christening back in 2008. Her goddaughter absolutely adores her and calls my wife her "fairy godmother". When she was very young, I think the girl even believed my wife truly was a fairy godmother, I mean the character from the fairy tales, with magical powers and so on. Anyway, it was her birthday recently and apparently, she said to her mum that she had decided that I would be her honorary fairy godfather. I don't know what that entails and I hope it does not involve doing magic, but I thought it was nevertheless very cute. And a bit surprising, as she had never been nearly as fond of me as she is of my wife.
