inspired by Irishlove who from history would you like to meet? Personally, I’d like to meet Geoffery Chaucer, he seems to be quite the interesting fellow.
I’d like to meet President Nixon and King Henry VIII. I think they’d be fun to hang out with.
The members of Kansas I haven’t yet met
Doobie Brothers original lineup
Harry S Truman
General Mac Arthur
If I had a time machine, I’d hang out at Slaughter’s Coffee House in 18th century London and attempt to strike up a friendship with Thomas Chippendale.
Personally, this would be most interesting to me if it was during the period when he was composing the first edition of his book, “The Gentleman and Cabinetmaker’s Director”.
I’ve read a bit about him, but what struck me most was how similar his cabinetshop was to most shops today. The slings and arrows, the dream customers, defeats, victories and so forth.
Plus ce change, plus c’est la meme chose.
People I would love to meet:
Mary Todd Lincoln
The Emporer of San Francisco
Catherine the Great
(I could go on all night.)
John Candy - I think he’d be a blast to hang out with.
Sure there are hundreds upon hundreds of historical figures it’d be interesting to meet, but he’s the one I’d pick.
