The Accidental Godmother
December 10, 2015 9:34pm CST
I was having second thoughts in attending the wedding of my boss’ brother who is a co-affiliate while the bride is a former office mate . But yesterday , through the prodding of my office mates who made me feel guilty of saying yes to the mother of my boss to attend it , I decided to just go . I was in our Thursday uniform though, but since it’s a whole dress and I am in my high heeled shoes , I thought it is also apt for the occasion . I just put on my peach shawl. My officemates and I were at the back pews . When the time for the principal sponsors (godparents ) to sign in the marriage contract , one of the godmothers was absent . Thus , the groom had me called in front and let me sign on their marriage contracts instead . Gosh , I was shocked because I was just there to attend the wedding not in the least expecting that I will be an “accidental godmother “ , much to the laughter of my office mates . But anyway , I love to be their godmother , even in an accidental way . Now , they call me "ninang" (the Tagalog word for godmother ).

@sofssu Indeed . We were actually outside the church and looking at the entourage and teasing each one as they pass by us as they go inside the church . They were after all , mostly our co-affiliates , with the bride a former office mate of ours and the groom a co-affiliate of ours too . The other girls are co-affiliates of us and at one time my office mates .

Yes, that's actually our uniforms . I juts put on the shawl to make it not so obviosu. The rest of my officemates and co-affiliates were ready . They went to the office in civilian dress already whch they have previously asked for permission of.
