For this week’s Great Book of Lists prompt, we’ve been asked to host a dinner party, and invite anyone we like, alive or dead.
Where to even begin with this one? Well, as seems increasingly to be the case, my first thought was for writers… then musicians… then people who generally inspire me… plus a few who would liven up any party (who wouldn’t want to dance the macarena with Einstein on the dance floor after a few sherries??). I have left out those who I would like to have met one-on-one, but am not sure about inviting to a party situation (Van Gogh, Roald Dahl, Queen Elizabeth I, Marie Curie…)
So, in no particular order, I would invite:
The Dalai Lama (these last two to sit next to each other)
My co-host for this party would be Dorothy Parker. I am also tempted to invite Brian Blessed, the actor/ explorer, although I’m not sure my ears would take it… perhaps we could lock him in the next room?
