I thought that this was a great question of the day over at Shakespeare's Sister. "You get to choose three living people to meet. One will be your companion for a single dinner, one will serve as a mentor, and one will become a close friend. Who do you choose?"
Dinner Companion: Queen Elizabeth
I mean, it should be someone that for the rest of your life you can say, "Oh, I had dinner with her once..."
Mentor: Scott Adams
I can't think of anyone who has more of what I want - the doodling, writing, speaking engagements, and restaurant entrepreneurship. In fact, that's exactly what I want.
Close Friend: Stephen Colbert
Oh, the laugh-your-butt off gaming sessions and deep philosophical and political conversations!
