If you could have dinner with any 5 people in the whole world, who would you choose? Why would you choose them? What would you ask them and what would you tell them? That is the challenge I’m faced with for today’s prompt.
[Day 5]: If you could have dinner with any five people, who would they be?
Yeh, small problem there. I’ve been watching Doctor who for the past hour and so, I really can’t think passed – Dr. Who. I’m trying to take this seriously, but who wouldn’t want dinner with Dr. Who?
Ok, so because I’m failing in my 15 day challenge and my 30 day challenge, I took some time to think of who I would have a 5 person dinner party with and what I would serve them. To be quite honest, I don’t think I want to invite any dead relatives. I noticed a fellow challenge contestants started saying in their entries that they would invite their grandparents who died before they were born or other such people, but I don’t think I would want to. I mean, sure it would be GREAT to speak to my grandmother again and there are relatives that I never got the chance to meet that I would love to get to know or ask what their stories are, but I also know how I am and I don’t think speaking to them would be so great for me. I mean I know this is all hypothetical and you can’t really invite dead people to dinner, but even in this hypothetical situation, I’d get upset at the mere sight of my grandparents, and then when dinner ended, I’d probably walk out the door with them into the big wide unknown because I wouldn’t want them taken away from me again. Do you see my conundrum? Again, I know I’m reading WAAAAY too far into the question.
If it were easy enough, I would say – I would have dinner with my Grandmother, her mother and her grandmother, just to see what stories they have and what they can share with me, I’d also get them to tell me all about the family tree just so I could help my mother out, who is struggling to put it all together. I’d also invite two of my relatives on my dad side, for similar reasons.
But in fun, I looked to celebrities or characters who I would love to spend an evening with, laughing over grape juice served in wine glasses and eating cheese fondue.
I would invite:
|Doctor Who |
If you didn’t see that coming, you’re kidding yourself.
|Doctor Daniel Jackson |
His gift would be all access pass to the star gate (because all dinner guests are expected to bring gifts)
|James Joyce |
He’d be there to write all about the evenings events. Dubliners Style.
|Claudia Donovan |
Otherwise it would be a bit weird, me having dinner with a bunch of guys. Needed to even the playing field.
|Peter Bishop |
I’ve invited the guy who travels through time and space and the guy who travels throughout universes; so it was only fitting that I invite the guy who travels between parallel universes.
And if any of them couldn’t make it, I’d invite the kids from Harry Potter.
Also, conveniently I might add, most of these people are associated with messing around with time, time travel, collapsing universes and other such fun events so, in my wisdom, this could work out well! Not only could I ask them anything and everything I need to know about time travel, I could also prolong the entire dinner because I could just keep going back in time. I know, it breaks so many rules, but think of the fun I could have.
