|We’ll pull up two more chairs tomorrow.*|
Tonight we sent invitations to
Representative Ron Paul (patriot; Mr. Big Food)
Antonín Leopold Dvořák (composer; me)
Alan Alda (actor; Miss M)
Oscar Wilde (playwrite; Miss M’s Friend)
Freddy Mercury (musician; Kat)
Gene Roddenbury (policeman and screenwriter; Daughter C)
Joel Salatin (farmer; Tony)
Alvin Plantinga (philosopher; A. Leland)
With just one round left, here is the seating arrangement for Table 2 (as before, funny corner symbols represent table corners, blank spaces represent empty chairs):*
Philip K. Dick
Hunter S. Thompson
As we near the end of our little game– which, by the way, has no clear “objective” other than our having fun– I thought it might be useful to post Table 1’s seating arrangement and a word or two about us.*
Henry David Thoreau
Lauren Becall (age 19)
Samuel Colt John Ford
Robert E. Lee
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John von Neumann
* By decree– I make the rules but Mr. Big Food issues the decrees– we eight players in the Imaginary Dinner Party Game are figurative flies on the walls. (No one wants literal flies on walls at a Dinner Party.) Looking at the two tables, I think this is the best way to go. It could have been worse. Mr. Big Food might have decreed that we had to serve!
Wonder if Mr. Big Food has thought about an imaginary menu?
