The other day while we were watching “Castle” (one of my FAVORITE television shows), they brought up the idea of a Last Supper List. Essentially, if you were to have a last supper, what twelve people (living or dead, famous or not) would you want to have there with you?
I’ve heard of other lists–such as the list of five celebrities you’d sleep with given the chance. Of course both lists are just fantasy but I think that this one is much more interesting (albeit a little bit morbid). As such, I’ve decided to share with you my Last Supper List.
Keep in mind, as I wrote this, it was a given that my husband and children were there with me. 🙂 These are in no particular order.
1. My Grandma and Grandpa Lee. (I realize this is two people but quite literally, you can’t have my grandpa without my grandma and vice versa…besides, my grandma usually was sitting on my grandpa’s lap so they’d only take up one chair.)
2. William Shakespeare. I LOVE him–enough said.
3. Pocahontas. As many of you saw my Tweet a few weeks back, I am her direct descendant and I think it would be fascinating to sit down with her and find out how it all really happened. (Not that I don’t trust the Disney version of the story–wink wink.)
4. Baby #1. Of course I would want to meet him.
5. Glenn Busby. I would love to sit with my husband’s father and thank him for setting such an excellent example for Tom–on how to be an amazing husband and wonderful father.
6. Tim Allen. With this eclectic group of folks, we might need a good laugh. Also, I think Tim Allen and I have many of the same political and life views.
7. Jennifer Weiner. Jen is one of my favorite authors. She makes me cry, she makes me laugh, and then she makes me laugh until I cry. I’d like to opportunity to tell her how much I adore and admire her.
8. Thomas Jefferson. As an educator, I would love to sit and talk with President Jefferson. He had innovative ideas regarding education and it would be fascinating to have a conversation with him.
9. Ghandi. Who wouldn’t want to meditate and get counsel from Ghandi?
10. Reba McEntire. Who doesn’t need a little music at dinner? Besides, Reba is one of the coolest people in the world.
11. Garth Brooks. (See #10–maybe they could sing a duet?)
12. Gertrude Stein. I wrote my Master’s Capstone on Stein and I have been fascinated with her since. She was a genius before her time and paved the way for women writers.
Okay. So there is my list. Were there any surprises? Why don’t you create your own list–I’d love to hear your #lsl. 🙂
