Anna: If you could have a dinner party with 5 guests from history — who would you invite?
David: Five guests with me — making 6 altogether?
Anna: Yes — three boys and three girls from history!
David: That is not an easy one. I really admire Albert Einstein but I’m not sure I would want him at my dinner party. In fact, I think most people from history probably wouldn’t make good dinner guests. They only got to be famous by being either very serious or extremely horrible!
Anna: What about William Shakespeare? I imagine he’d be great at a dinner party. I can just imagine him saying “To have tea, or not to have tea? That is the question”.
David: Very funny — not, but that’s a good choice. OK, so I will invite Shakespeare — Shakespeare and Ivan the Terrible.
Anna: What? That would be…
David: Terrible? No, I don’t think so. Of course, we’d have to imagine that at this party everyone could speak English, but I think Ivan would make for some lively conversation.
Anna: And the women? Who would you invite?
David: Of course, I would invite Cleopatra, if she was free — reputedly one of the most beautiful women in history. Together we could also discuss with Shakespeare how well he represented her in his play “Anthony and Cleopatra”.
Anna: OK — who else?
David: Well, I think Nancy Astor would be fun.
Anna: That’s a coincidence. My brother was talking about Nancy Astor the other day. He said she was very clever and funny. And she wras the first woman member of parliament in the UK — right? Good choice! So, we have you, Shakespeare, Ivan the Terrible plus Cleopatra, Nancy Astor and…..who will be the final lady to invite to this marvelous party?
David: The last guest will be a beautiful lady, great company and someone I think all the other guests will enjoy. Will you, Anna, be free to join this party?
Anna: Thanks for the compliment, but I’m not someone from history.
David: But it’s my imaginary party and I’d love you to be there.
