    The Ultimate Dinner Party

    This topic came up at lunch so I thought it would make an interesting post.

    If you could host a dinner party and invite any 5 people, DEAD or ALIVE, who would you invite.

    This is what I came up with:

    1. My grandfather (he died before I met him)
    2. The Dalai Lama
    3. Sun Tzu
    4. Bruce Lee
    5. Jesus Christ

    Well, considering I could take advantage of the oppurtunity to invite dead people - my list would be as follows:

    1. My Grandfather (Died years ago)
    2. My Grandmother (Died years ago)
    3. My other Grandmother (Died years ago)
    4. My Cousin (Killed by a drunk driver years ago)
    5. My youngest sister who died of a miscarriage many years ago

    Never forget the importance of family. I know if I had the chance I'd want to talk to them all again...

    I think I would take advantage of being able to invite people who have passed away also.

    1. My Father (died 4 1/2 years ago)
    2. My Grandmother (died 6 years ago)
    3. My uncle (died 4 1/2 years ago)
    4. Another uncle (died 6 years ago)
    5. My aunt (died 6 years ago)

    I miss my family very much.

    Ohhh...Colin Powell. Good one. Ok,ok...we can expand the list. However, you only have seating for up to ten people (including yourself).

    In which case, I would like to include:

    6 Colin Powell
    7 Johnny Cash
    8 Beethoven
    9 Johnny Depp (dressed as the Pirate of the Caribbean)

    Boadicea...I actually considered inviting her! I was afraid she would eat the men.

    That sounds kind of ignorant - why would she eat the men?

    That was meant as a joke. Hence the smiley. I actually admire her as both a Queen and Warrior.
