Bored? Invite Twelve People to Dinner

Over the years, you would expect your list of heroes to change.  Life events all go to colour our judgement and affect what we think about the world around us, and consequently, the people we consider as admirable in some way. My ‘main’ list of heroes has been static for about ten years, but new groups keep emerging …

Try this.

Consider for a moment that you are standing on the platform at Southampton Airport station waiting for the 0650 to Waterloo (which I used to do). You’ve got time on your hands for five minutes before the crush to get on the train and get to ‘your seat’.

If you could invite 12 heroes to dinner, who would you invite? This is a pretty good way of dividing the ‘sheep heroes’ from the ‘goat heroes’. Seriously, who is good enough for you to want to cook for? I should add that this little test can be expanded or contracted depending on how much time you’ve got before the train arrives. The possibilities are endless:

  • Dead or alive? Or both?
  • Fictional characters allowed?
  • Six or Twelve?

You may also wish to consider whether they’d all be able to talk to each other or not, but that depends on what kind of virtual host you’d like to be.
