Over the dinner the other evening, my friends and I went around the table and answered the following question: “If you could invite anyone for dinner, alive or dead, which three people would you choose?”
The answers surprised me. Some were predictable enough, but some people made me raise an eyebrow. Suggested dinner guest ranged from Alan Hansen to Justin Bieber, from Mohammed Ali to Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln to Mark Twain. I suggested Gandhi, Saddam Hussein and Hitler. That might make interesting chat.
Try this: Write a scene where you’ve invited three people (alive or dead) and write what happens at they come in, one at a time. What are you serving, bearing in mind who you’ve invited then start the conversation…what do you think everyone would say and how would they react to the other guests?
Have fun. Bon appetit!
