You're Having Dinner...


A

nd just who are you inviting? Imagine you're having New Year's Day dinner... you can invite anyone... ANYONE... the only stipulation is that they must be dead. Yes, a bunch of dead people at your dinner table. I know, I know... some of you are saying this sounds like dinner with the family last week.

Seriously, if you could have a dinner party of 10 famous dead people who would be on the list and why? My list is as follows and not in any specific order:

1. Charlemagne: just because he's cool and intelligent.

2. Jesus Christ: to find out did if He did or didn't die on the cross. Hmmmm... did anyone else hear that clap of thunder?

3. Marie Antoinette: Get out the champagne glasses for proof!

4. Mozart: We need dinner music.

5. Vlad Tsepesch aka Count Dracula: To help control unruly guest.

6. Julius Caesar: To find out what Cleopatra was really like.

7. Edgar Allen Poe: To regale us in an after dinner story.

8. Eve: We all need a naked girl at dinner. Plus she's bringing apple strudel.

9. Sophia van Lodensteyn: 8th Great Grandmother... to ask her why, WHY did you leave Europe? I could have been King of something right now.

10. Blank: To be filled in later, because I know a week from now I'll think of someone I should have invited.

Observations and Questions
Who is on your short list and why? Also... this might be interesting. Out of the 9 people mentioned above, who are the TWO people I am NOT related to? We'll see if you've been paying attention.
