Sharing the ‘Que for Two

Challenge #3: If you could share the ‘Que for Two with anyone, who would it be?  Why?

Tough one.  I came up with a mental list of influential people who would make interesting company over a platter of legendary ‘que.  Ronald Reagan came to mind quickly.  Charles Haddon Spurgeon.  General David Petraeus.  LaDainian Tomlinson.  But after an excellent meal at our Rancho Cucamonga Famous Dave’s Monday night, I couldn’t get over the incredible feeling of peace that Dave’s grub always gives me.  Skipping through a meadow of wild flowers after a late spring rain peace.  Barefoot.

The answer smacked me in the back of the head (most peacefully, of course)!  Who would be better to share the ‘Que for Two with than Mahatma Gandhi?  The man who pretty much defined non-violent civil disobedience.  A champion of peace who led his nation to independence.  I would soak up his words of wisdom, bask in the gentle aura of one of history’s great leaders.  Gandhi, a man of peace and leadership–

Who am I kidding?  It’s mostly because he was a vegetarian.  Here, Mr. Gandhi, sir, take a corn muffin and some fries.  But the ribs … mine!  Brisket … mine!  Chicken … mine!  I’d order the Wilbur Beans, which has chunks of smokey, glorious MEAT in it … mine, mine, mine!  ALL MINE!

*takes deep, cleansing breath*

Just keepin’ it real, folks.

    Smart choice… lol Reading the beginning, I thought that someone had maybe hacked into your blog (only kidding). Then, I thought, “Wait, this is Jay we’re talking about here. He probably has an alterior motive.” So as I kept reading I was pleased to find a more Jay-like answer. Good to know that you’re just keeping it real!!! lol 😀

    I think I would share with Jay and Brenna. After all, I could never finish a whole ‘que by my self. So, there you have it. 🙂

    Why, thank you, Becka! That would be really cool, since you’re so little, we can just bully you out of your share!

    I would probably have to share it with our President, Mr. Barack Obama, so that I can discuss the possibility of him sharing 700 billion dollars with me.
