Dear Mindy Cohn…

Strange-but-true-fact:  Mindy Cohn aka Natalie Green aka the fat one from maybe the best thing  to ever come out of the ‘80s (other than Hungry, Hungry Hippos), The Facts of Life, is the godmother of Brangelia’s twins.  Weird, right?  That’s a rhetorical question because obviously it’s like the weirdest shit ever.  Well I don’t mean to toot my own horn or anything (yes I do), but as of this past weekend I’m proud to say that I  have something in common with my chubby friend (other than our mutual affinity for Ding Dongs) — I am also a godmother!  At first I didn’t think I was going to cut it considering Sunday Mass hasn’t been on my list of things to do for about a decade now and I’m currently living in sin with a Jew who thinks Jesus was just “some guy”.  Luckily I had my 12 years of Catholic School training to tell me that I shouldn’t bring that stuff up at the Baptism.  The priest was all, “do you accept your duties as a godmother?” and I was all “hell yeah!!”… there was some incense, a little holy water, a couple crying babies and voila — I’m a godmother.  Let the spoiling of Tabitha Drew begin!!

    I think the best part of your godmotherly gift to Tabitha was the card to her that said, “Awwwwww, SHIT, Tabby! I’m so happy to be your Godmother!” hahaha

    How do you know Mindy Cohn is the godmother? So seriously strange!

      Haha. Save it and someday she’ll either think it’s funny or she’ll look at us like we’re mental. As for Mindy, I just googled “famous godparents” and it was so shockingly random I thought I had to write to her!
