The 13th Guest

13 People I'd Invite to Dinner (dead, obviously)
1. Andy Warhol…the king of Pop Art. I’d invite him because he’s be fascinated with everyone else at the dinner table.

2. Mary Queen of Scots…because she was a fascinating victim of circumstance and I’d love to ask her about things from her point of view.

3. William Shakespeare…because I want to know if he really did write all those sonnets & plays or if it really was someone else?

4. Jane Austen…because I’d be interested to hear her opinions about her modern fame. And she was a fan of Mary, QofS.

5. St. Joseph…I was going to say Jesus Christ, but would anyone else at the dinner table really be able to focus on anyone but Him? So I think it would be better to have His stepdad.

6. Lord Byron…because he’d shake things up a bit.

7. My friend Boyd…because I miss him and he’d have a blast.

8. Adolf Hitler…come on, who wouldn’t like to either find out what he was thinking or give him a piece of their mind?

9. Beau Brummell…he’d set the standard of fashion.

10. Jane Fitzalan, Baroness Lumley…because I want to know if I actually portray her accurately at RenFaire, and she was brilliant.

11. Wofgang Amadeus Mozart…he was a genius and a flirt.

12. Dorothy Parker…because someone has to add some humour to the group.

13. Some random person from the Elizabethan age…to get things from their perspective.

Carmen said...

I'd like to ask the Bard if he wrote all that hidden meaning in his plays that they made us look for in HS English class. :)

I would want Hitler over just so I could ask him some serious questions and give him a psycho analasys

Bex said...

Great list! Really! Hitler would scare the beejesus out of me. And since my children are part Jewish on their dad's side...yeah..I don't think so! But yeah, I'd like to have a "talk" with him!

Great list...I'd like to meet them all as well. And Lincoln. Maybe not Hitler. Don't think I'd be able to hold a rational conversation with him. lol
