Years ago we used to play a party game where everyone had to think of 12 people, dead or alive, that they would invite to a dinner party. It was always an interesting question to ask people, “Who would you invite?”
I had a set answer for a number of my imaginary guests… people I would love to question about things that puzzled me the most in my life. I mention this because I just read a blog post that was about Steve Allen. He was always on my guest list. So was Mark Twain sitting right there with Jesus and Buddha, maybe Ben Franklin. After that, my list might vary from time to time. Usually I had either Justinian or Theodora – I had some serious questions for them. And maybe Cheops or Khufu or Akhenaton would be there.
Who would you invite?
