Fantasy Dinner Party for Sunday Scribblings

The rules are:- you can invite anyone, living or dead- you have a table that seats eight, but as you are one, you can invite seven people- you have to explain why you'd invite them.

My first choice as a dinner guest would be Jesus. I would love to get a few answers, like is there more and if so what? Which religion is closest to the truth and did I chose to live this life? The real show stopper, is this hell? lol

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

Interesting guest list but I wonder if Mr, Pitt might so intriguing you would forget the rest. better be careful, you wouldn't want to miss the debate. For me, I would spend every second with Mary Oliver.

Linda Jacobs said...

Love your choices! And the menu, too!

Do you think you might find room at your table for me? I would love to hear the debate while I stare at Brad. I wouldn't have to eat just listen and look. I could maybe just sit on the floor?

I thought of inviting Mary Oliver.
Good guest list.

What time is Jesus arriving??

ChefDruck said...

Great image! I'd love to eat with anyone there. I'm not sure Brad Pitt could keep quiet though.

Stan Ski said...

Yaaay. You are really back blogging! I have missed this part of you. Great guest list and even better food. I have thought of this exercise some time in the past and Mother Theresa has always been one of my guests. Maybe I will blog this!

Cheryl said...

I love this post, so thought out and funny too. The menu is yummy. I too, would love to be a fly on the wall for this dinner conversation.

Hope all is well.

I loved your selection of dinner guests, and particularly your question for Mother Teresa - that's one I hadn't thought of to ask her and I'd love to know the answer too!

Mary Timme said...

I figure we get to spend our eternity with Jesus and he lives in my heart, so I think I'd just invite Jane Austin. Times 7 of them. One for each story and leftovers.

I just may have to crash this party!
Love ya,

b Barbara said...

I loved your guest list. Yes, Jesus definitely...I would want the NY Times to be there for that conversation. You had the perfect question. Colin Powell and what about Madeleine Albright. Brad Pitt was just genius! Didn't you just love this prompt?

Welcome back!

I saw Mr Pitt the other day on the tele being interviewed. I don't think he would keep quiet.I reckon some of those other guests would have a very interesting and educational conversation with Jesus.I would like to listen in to that.

Geraldine said...

This is great Tammy, what a fun read. I don't know who I'd invite?

Thanks for your comment re: Mitzi. Unfortunately, it got deleted accidentally. Stop by again when you can.
