Yesterday’s blog challenge topic was so fun, and today’s (Day #8!) is really tough for me.
Who would you like to meet? Someone famous, someone passed, someone you are friends with but have never met?
A lot of geniuses and artists—the people I would think would be fascinating to talk to—are known to be (or have been) kinda asshole-y in personal relationships. I’m afraid I’d walk away from them feeling disappointed, and that would forever “ruin” them for me.
I’d be so starstruck to meet celebrities who are alive today—Tina Fey, Jon Stewart, women’s beach volleyball Olympians (that was for you, Loveliest Lori), Jesse L. Martin, Amy Sedaris, Justin Timberlake—that I’d make a complete idiot of myself. No thank you. But if I could choose some celebrities to meet just long enough to punch them in the face? It’d be a very long list of politicians and Kardashians.
I never knew any of my great-grandparents; it might be interesting to talk to them.
For the purpose of putting this post out of its misery, I’m going to choose Walt Disney as the person I’d like to meet, but I’d want to meet him early in his career just so I could knock the cigarettes out of his hand. I might also discourage him from making Song of the South. I believe Disney had much more magic to contribute to the world; stoopid lung cancer took him too soon.
What about you? How would you answer this question?
