No One At the Table

I've never had a good answer for the cliche, "If you could have five people (living or deceased) to dinner, who would they be?"

I would like to ask my grandma what stitch she used for the half complete afghan I want to finish.

I would ask Clara why she married Charlie the second time.

I asked my grandpa the questions I had. The best advice he gave me was that it takes that real strong feeling for someone to keep a marriage going (both of you). You could get by with almost anything if you had that.

I'd ask my other grandpa how he kept his african violets so nice. I have instructions, but I just can't seem to get them as healthy as his were.

I can't help it... I think the difference in seriousness between the questions of your two grandpas is hilarious.

I hate that question too.... probably because I suspect that no one else *really* knows that much more about life than anyone else, famous or dead...
