My Party Invite List
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?
