I mentioned last week that Diana Ross was on the list of people with whom I’d like to have dinner.
I also said that would probably never happen, and my friend and faithful reader, Lynn, reminded me to never say never!
It could happen!
And of course, it got me to thinking of others with whom I’d like to dine.
Now, I’ve narrowed it to 7 people although I have enough dinner plates to serve about 80!. Add me, and you have eight at the table, and honestly, who can abide an uneven table?
So here goes.
Miss Ross of course is there simply because she’s brought my so much joy via the airwaves for so long. I’m sure she’s a diva, but I’m also sure the conversation would be lively!
I’d have to have Martha Stewart stop by a few hours early just so she could cook, or at the very least supervise. Really, the woman has taught me so much on her TV show! And why not have an expert so the dinner will be perfect.
It’s a good thing.
I’d include President Obama, even though I detest politics and politicians of all sorts, just because I have a few ideas I think he should hear.
Oprah Winfrey and John Grisham are on the list: I want my book published, and why not go to the mountaintop?
Jessica Lange would have to be there, because quite frankly, I’d pay to watch her walk across the street. She’s a fave!
And, last but not least, Dame Maggie Smith! I’ve loved her since “The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie” but, really, let her slip into the Dowager Countess role, and watch the conversation develop.
Who wouldn’t want that?
Who would you have at your dinner?
