I absolutely HATE the taste of beer! :!:
However I would love to have a drink with authors Brother Andrew, C. S. Lewis, Darlene Diebler Rose, Corrie Ten Boom, Gladys Alyward, Charles Dickens, Lew Wallis and Hudson Taylor. And since ALL of them now reside in Heaven, make it New Wine and don't call me back to earth afterward and you have a deal.
Love Laura-Lee :tiphat: :angelic-cyan:
And they sang a new song saying,
"You are worthy to take the book,
and to open its to seals,
for You were slain and have redeemed us to God,
by your blood, out of every tribe and tongue and people and Nation." Rev. 5:9
NKJ & KJV

Margaret Atwood no doubt. I'd like to sit down with her in a little cafe and just ask her about the ending of A Handmaid's Tale because it's torturing me. What happened to Offred? Did she find her daughter? Did she end up working in the brothel like Moira? What about Nick? Did he get in trouble for sneaking her out?
So many questions and I need answers. :shock2:
Did you get any answers in The Testaments?

Poe! I would love to just sit and chat while drinking some brews with Poe. I feel that we could have some very dark but inspiring conversations.

Edgar Allen Poe would prob be my first choice. tho it might be a little scary once that guy was drunk...he'd pretty much scare me sober so drunk who knows.

and it'd be like 8 shots...im not a beer person. ha and then i'd have to chain smoke like a pack of cigarettes...cause that's what happens when i drink.
Christopher Hitchens would be happy to join you!

I would love to hang out in a pub with Tolkien, but that will take some effort. Instead I might be quite content to meet with any current fantasy writer and pick their brain. My top choice might be Brandon Sanderson. I think I would also enjoy discussions with Koontz or King, but that would be more of a coffee discussion than beer.

I can't help thinking Bill Bryson would be a great person to have a pint or two with. Conversation would be easy and we could moan about a lot of things we both hate.
