A writer once said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” If this is true, which five people would you like to spend your time with?
I know I am a day behind but I really wanted to do this one! Who would I spend my time with? So so many choices. I’ll give it a shot.
The great Freddie Mercury. My understanding is he died unhappy. How could it be? He gave so much to the music world. He is easily the one person I’d give anything to talk to.
Conan O’brien. The funniest guy alive. His humor is intelligent yet simply written and to me just unbelievably funny. His commencement speech to the Darmouth Class of 2011 is historical. You tube it, it is so funny yet you can see how affected he was about his issues with NBC.
Walter Cronkite. Growing up as a young kid in the 70’s, he was the news. He came across that screen to me as humble, honest and trustworthy. He is one I would love to pick his brain cause he reported on so much. I remember him ending the news with the total number of Americans lost in Viet Nam. Great man.
The great Morgan Freeman. He has always come across as someone you could easily sit down with and have a beer. Fame doesn’t seem to make a difference to him. His acting is incredible, I am surprised he only has one Oscar. Not to mention his voice is so soothing. I wish he would live forever.
Vincent “Bo” Jackson. What more do I need to say then Bo. Easily my favorite athlete of all time.
It’s hard to make a list of just five. I’d love to meet my mom and dad again. My Uncle Charles. My grandmother who was the quintessential southern belle.
Till we meet again. Good day.
Mind of Shoo
I really love Morgan Freeman and I love Freddie Mercury’s voice, but I don’t know anything about him. I go through phases where I find someone and start dreaming at night that that’s who I am, so in a sense this is kind of literal for me and of course it would be changing all the time. Currently, it’s Anne Frank, and before that it was Audrey Hepburn. Oh, it was simply amazing to hear myself speak in her voice!!
