If you could have dinner with anyone

  1. Sep 6, 2008 #1
    If you could have dinner with anyone now living, or dead (no, no zombies now); who would it be and why?

    I'll go first...

    Doris Kearns Goodwin--History Professor; and because she knows a lot about Roosevelts, and made me admire them growing up.

    Deborah Harry--because she was adopted, punk, and is beautiful even at 63.

    My wife. We never order the same thing so we can sample from each other's plate.

    I don't care who I have dinner with, what's important is who is doing the cooking! :biggrin:

    One that comes to mind is Socrates. I was corrupted by him as a young person and would like to thank him.

    I have no idea why I just said that :uhh:

    And more important than that:what's the dinner?

    It would have to be Axle Rose, Guns-n-Roses. Can you imagine what a great party dinner that would be? GNR is my favorite band!

    Mr. Snuffleupagus. He seems like he would be very easy to please and get along with at a dinner table. Especially since I'm dying to ask him just what the hell he is.
