My Party Invite List

25people-tile

I won’t get into a long philosophical debate here, I will just state that I am not overly religious.  The truth be told, I am more agnostic than anything else.  I have no book that answers all my needs and that’s okay.  I feel fulfilled in my life and I believe that’s what matters.  However, I need to believe there’s an after life.  I have to believe it because if I don’t the sadness of losing my grandma would be too much to bear.  I think it would be a place without class barriers where there is no rich or poor.  A place where we all get to mingle.  Then I would throw a giant party and invite the following people:

  • Leonardo Da Vinci, just so I could pick his brain for a bit and thank him for his imagination.
  • William Shakespeare because I would love to let him know how many romantic tales he inspired.
  • Jane Austen, to thank her for bringing love and humor to readers all over the world.
  • Lucille Ball.  Oh come on, it’s Lucy, need I say more?
  • Marie Antoinette, so I can feed her cake and eat it too.
  • Mark Twain, just to sit and listen to him speak.
  • Gandhi, to discuss world events.
  • Galileo, to tell him how much we now know about space.
  • Albert Einstein, because he’s Einstein.
  • Harriet Tubman, to stand back and just be in awe of her courage.
  • Martin Luther King Jr., to tell him that we’re still working on that dream of his.
  • Jim Henson, to hear him do the voice of Kermit and thank him for the gift of my childhood.
  • Charlie Chaplin, for laughs.
  • Winston Churchill, to discuss politics.
  • Princess Diana, to let her know that her boys are doing just fine.
  • Mother Theresa, this one I have never understood but I really want to meet her.
  • Babe Ruth, to play a round of baseball.
  • Heath Ledger, because he’s Heath Ledger.
  • Abe Lincoln, to see if I can catch him in a lie and to wear his hat.
  • Dr. Seuss, to thank him for it all, from Green Eggs and Ham to The Cat in the Hat.
  • Jimi Hendrix, for guitar lessons.
  • Bea Arthur, because she is probably the most hilarious person ever.
  • Jack the Ripper, so I can finally know who he is.
  • George Carlin, because sometimes I just need to laugh at reality.
  • Charles Dickens, to give him a hug, this man was in serious need of a hug.

If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would it be and why?

  1. Some great choices on here! Jim Henson and Dr. Seuss in particular. I’d add Charles Darwin for sure. ….One of my personal heroes.

    • There are so many. I limited myself to 25. Charles Darwin would be very very interesting to meet.
