So, I’m not sure if you’ve ever been asked this question as an icebreaker before, but since I worked as an RA (resident assistant) at the university for three years, I’ve heard it a few times:
“If you were about to die, but you could have dinner with anybody you chose (live or dead), who would you have dinner with? You may only have room at the table for eight people.”
There’s one answer that I think is poorly thought out: religious figures. Aka: Jesus/Vishnu/Mohammad
Like, what if “said religious person” wasn’t the entity that modern religion made them out to be, wouldn’t that be an awkward turtle?
Issue number two: if your religion proves to be the correct one in the afterlife, this entity is the one you’re going to have to spend lunch/dinner with for the rest of your deadness.
But, I get it, some people are religious. I can respect that.
My religion is internet.
Thusly, here are my (epic) eight:
3. Carol Beer
5. Ken Lee
7. Bon qui qui
8. Ms. Swan
Those sitting at the kiddie table (honorable mentions):
2. Dog girl
Who would be your eight?
