5 Dinner Guests
Posted by Debra Ann Elliott at 3:00 PM Thursday, April 19, 2012
My dinner guest list would consist of these five people: Khalil Gibran, Henry David Thoreau, Jesus, and my parents.
You're probably wondering why I chose these five people. I chose Khalil Gibran and Henry David Thoreau because I am a writer and they are two of my favorite writers. I would have Gibran read from The Prophet. I love the philosophy of Gibran. Why Thoreau? He was also a very philosophical man. I would listen for hours as he read Walden. I would love to invite my dinner guest to Walden Pond. I can hear the dinner conversation between the two philosophers about the world in which we live in today.
Why Jesus? I am a Christian and feel I can't serve a dinner without His presence. He would be the light that would shine at the dinner table. He would be the teacher.
My parents are both gone and I would love to have one last dinner with them. My table would be decorated in yellow's and purple's. I would serve their favorite food's(making sure not to offend my other guests').
I guess the one of the main reasons I chose the dinner guest I did is because I love to talk religion and politics.
