These kind of memes are always kicking around but I quite like this one. If you could choose any 3 people from history (alive or dead) to have dinner with, who would they be, why and which single burning question would you ask them?
Here’s mine for a start …
Freddie Mercury because he was just such an amazing musical genius and an incredibly brave person. I’d want to find out if there was anything about his life that he didn’t put in a song. And why fried chicken?
Terry Pratchett because he is, without doubt, the most inspired, funny and clever author in living memory. I’ve read every novel he’s published several times and every time I read one I find something I didn’t notice last time. My question would be: Nobby or Carrot, which one is it?
George Orwell because I think he’d have really useful advice on how to survive in a world that is marching towards fulfilling his prophecy. I’d ask him if his disturbingly accurate predictions were a Nostradamus-like vision of the future or a lucky (or should that be unlucky?) guess.
As is usual in these things, here’s a list of the lucky people I’m nominating to answer the same …
- Gareth (aka Toque)
- Ginge (aka Pupazz the Sinister)
- Tim (aka the Englishman)
- Karl (aka Sir Bendy)
- Mounsey (aka the Devil)
