It’s an age-old game, who ~ famous or not ~ would you invite to a dinner party?
[By the way, I’m picking nine because the 10th would be me, so it’s nice and even!]
- The Mr: I can’t have a great dinner party ~ past, present or future ~ without him.
- Agatha Christie: A long-time favourite author, I’m hoping Aggie likes a chat and would fit in with some snapp conversation.
- Edwin Polaroid: To pick his brain and talk photography, naturally.
- J.K. Rowling: More recent favourite, hoping she shares a few Harry secrets, too.
- Diane: My first best friend at the age of 5, whom I lost touch with after her family moved away except for a brief contact during university when she turned 21.
- Marie Bashir: Our trip to Government House earlier this year was right before her retirement. Her story, work ethic and intellectual make me thing she would be an excellent guest
- Dave Grohl: If you have ever listened to this, you would know why.
- Hugh Laurie: Supremely talented and, if you follow him on Twitter, has a wonderful dry sense of humour.
- You: Prepared to bring a bottle of wine and add some sparkling conversation. Expect your invite in the mail!
So that’s my list, who would invite to your dinner party?
