Um, I was gonna write more about the mosque, but I don’t think anyone wants to hear anymore about it. So, today’s post is gonna be about something sweet. Something so, so, sweet.
I just finished reading one of the many books that I’m currently reading. It’s called “Revolutionary Characters”. Ever heard of it? Well, I bought this book awhile ago at UVU after the author came and gave a lecture. I figured out the other day that the book I have is actually signed by him. Awesome bonus!
It talks a little bit about the founding fathers and whatnot and how awesome there were. My favorite is George Washington because he is bad to the bone in every way. Talkin about George Washington reminds me of a trip I took to Lake Powell. I was sittin by my friend Brad Earl on the beach, both of us roasting to death, arguing about whether or not he is a red head or not.
Anyway, we ended up talking about if we could talk with any 3 people that have ever lived (excluding religious people Jesus, Joseph Smith, Brigham Young, etc.) who would we talk to. I started to name some, “George Washington, ummmm…….” Brad interrupted me and said, “Dude, nobody wants to talk to George Washington. How boring would that be? What are you gonna talk about?”
Good question, Brad. Good question.
I think Brad said he would talk to Charles Barkley, Tiger Woods and Julio Iglesias (random).
So, which three people would I chat with?
1. Bill Simmons
Bill Simmons is a comical sports columnist. He writes for espn on page 2. I’ve been reading his stuff since 2001 and I even bought his book “The Book of Basketball”. He’s also done guest appearances on PTI and he has a sweet podcast.
2. George Washington
Now, the thing about George Washington is that he wasn’t much of a talker in his day. He was more of a doer. So, me and him would probably have to strap up and kill a bunch of Tories.
3. Beastie Boys
They are my favorite music group of all time. They started rapping in the mid-80s and they are still makin albums today! They are trend setters in music and they have grey hair and rap. Grey hair!
