What dinner party would be complete without an opposing view and fellow ALS sufferer, Stephen Hawking. The debate with Jesus over the universe would be mind blowing. I'd also like his secret of surviving 40 years with ALS. Jesus might have a say in that too.
Another interesting choice would be Abe Lincoln. I'd like some answers on how he would tackle the mess we have made in our country. What would Abe do?
I'd have to sit Colin Powell across from Abe to hear some innovative solutions that together they could come up with. Of course Jesus and Stephen would probably jump in at some point. They could not help themselves I'm sure. lol
Mother Teresa would definitely be there to keep things from getting heated. I'd like to ask her what kept her going and how she felt when it was coming to an end. What would she do differently knowing what she now knows to be true.
Mary Oliver would be there to read her beautiful poetry over dessert on the veranda. I'd ask her endless questions on her writing process.
Last on my list would be Brad Pit. Why? Just to look at as I take in all the interesting conversations. Kind of like a center piece that just sits quietly and smiles.
Bonus if you share your menu:
Seared sea scallops to start
Roasted lamb with potato fondant and grilled vegetables. Jesus...dah!
Creme' Brulee for dessert
